About iClicker Cloud
Instructors run an iClicker Cloud desktop application on their computer (both Windows and Mac versions are available) while students access the questions on their own device, either through a web browser or app (available for both Android and Apple smartphones). Students do not need a physical iClicker device.
In order to run iClicker Cloud, instructors need the desktop application, an iClicker instructor account, and must have created a course.
By default, questions are created as multiple choice, but you can change to any of the following question types:
- multiple choice
- multiple answer
- short answer
You can also select anonymous mode, which allows you to ask sensitive questions that students might not feel comfortable answering if their response could be traced to their identity.
To enable grade syncing, you must link the iClicker Cloud course with your Canvas course then enable grade syncing. Students must also click the link to enable grade syncing to connect their Canvas account with their iClicker Cloud account.
