Using iClickers at CSU

A polling session is a question, or set of questions, given to students during a single class session.

Prepare For Polling

To ensure the best experience for instructors and students when using iClicker Cloud, all users must connect to the csu-net WIFi network, which is the fastest, most reliable network on campus. Connecting to other networks on campus, or a mobile network, will cause issues when participating in iClicker Cloud polls.

If using attendance with Geolocation, make sure all students have enabled location services on their polling device.

For any questions or support, please contact iClicker Support.

Run a Polling Session

If students in the class are using iClicker remotes instead of a mobile device, tablet or computer, make sure the iClicker base in the classroom is connected to the computer with the iClicker software and that the software is set to the frequency of the classroom.
