Changes often force us to adapt in ways we’ve never experienced, which can be a major driver of personal (and even professional) growth and development.

iClicker Integration

The iClicker tool is an innovative, self-paced polling system for instructors and students to utilize within the classroom. When an instructor registers their class, the instructor will be able to access this tool like a scantron in which students are given a set of questions and are required to answer them through an iClicker with alphanumeric or numeric answers. Once sent in, the system records students' immediate responses to each question. This tool allows instructors to assess their students' understanding through quick responses.

Beginning in January 2024, iClicker Cloud will become the exclusive supported iClicker instructor software. The iClicker Classic software will be retired on December 31, 2023.


To assist in the transition, MacMillan put together an accessible and motivating video for you to share with your instructors. This video features Dr. Mike Shapiro, a seasoned iClicker instructor who successfully transitioned from Classic to Cloud. He also discusses the continued viability of iClicker remotes with Cloud.


The iClicker team has set up the following Classic-to-Cloud upgrade resources for you to share with your faculty: 


Note: Message from the vendor below.

Instructors will need to download the iClicker software to connect with Canvas. 


Most of the support for iClicker will be via MacMillian. Please see the support links below.

  • No matter if you are using iClicker Classic or iClicker Cloud, both can be used for online learning. 
         - For iClicker Classic, instructors will just need to enable Reef and all students will need to use iClicker Reef to participate.
         - For iClicker Cloud, instructors will have all of their students use iClicker Reef to participate. Check out our quickstart guide to get started. 

  • The iClicker Cloud 5.1 desktop software update is available now. You should be prompted to update when you open the iClicker Cloud app, but you can also download it directly from the download page.
  • Our new iClicker Cloud feature, Assignments, is now available! This is the most flexible solution for in-person and remote classes, as well as synchronous and asynchronous classes. Feel free to check out our most recent webinar on this or visit this article on our support site for more details.  
  • The newest iClicker Cloud question type, Multiple Answer, is going live soon! This allows students to submit more than one answer and receive full or partial credit. This new feature will NOT require a software update if you are already using Cloud 5.1. 
  • Roster Grade Sync is now available for Canvas and Blackboard users (requires admin setup, please let me know if you are interested). 
  • Do not forget to sign up for our monthly newsletter to be up to date on the latest iClicker information. 

Jennie Ribera will support faculties needs with iClicker.
