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 v6.4. This folder has the i>clicker and i>grader applications —no installation process is necessary.

Version information:

  • The instructions below apply to version 6.4.1 of the i>clicker and i>grader software.

*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.


This tutorial applies to the following operating system(s):
