The CUClickers student response system utilizes a program called i>clicker to poll students and a program called i>grader to view results. You will only be downloading a .zip file that once unzipped is a folder called iclicker Mac v6.1. This folder has the i>clicker and i>grader applications —no installation process is necessary.
*Note: In order to work with CUClickers in your classroom you need to have your course roster file called Roster.txt in your i>clicker course folder (if integrating clickers with Desire2Learn, this file is not needed however). Visit the Download a myCUinfo Roster File page for information on downloading this file.
After downloading the CUClickersMac.zip file, your operating system should extract the zip file to create a folder called iclicker Mac v6.1.
Inside the folder you will see the i>clicker and i>grader programs.
Click New to add your first course to i>clicker. You will need to add a course for each class that you plan on using i>clicker with.
Enter your class information like seen to the left and click Create.
Check that the name of your course is how you would like it, if not click Edit to change the information.
In the Frequency Code section, set the frequency for the classroom you will be teaching in. Click here for a list of classroom frequencies.
Now look at the Security Code for Web Synchronization text field.
*Note: There is a text field scrolling issue, but you should be able to see most of the text entered. Make sure that there is text entered into this field by default. If there is not, enter:
This will allow you to synchronize remote IDs with students' names in the i>grader program.
In the Course Management System section, make sure that General (no CMS specified) is selected.
While in My Settings, you can set your remaining preferences for Polling.
Save these settings by clicking on the Set for Course button.
You will be returned to the main i>clicker menu. Click on the red button in the upper left hand corner to exit.
