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

Version information:

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

Note: If you have the choice, choose Save File instead of opening it.

If you open the file and don't change the name by going to Save As, then you can change the name by clicking on the file in its saved location (default is generally the Desktop).

Move the exported file from your D2L grade book and place it in your CUClickers course folder.

*Note: The Roster.txt file is not necessary for Desire2Learn and should be deleted if present.

Step 10

Open the i>clicker application, click on your course and click on My Settings.

After using i>clicker in your course, you can export results from the i>grader program to include in your D2L grade book.

Learn about this process by visiting the D2L - Importing CUClicker Scores into Grade Book tutorial.

Step 15

You will be returned to the grade book, where you can see your new i>clicker scoring data has been updated.
