iCLicker Student Instructions and Instructor Prep  



1.      GET THE ICLICKER (note the brand name is iClickerno other clicker will work in this course). Approximately $30.50 from NJ Books and $35 from the Rutgers Bookstore. You can also buy a used iClicker and you can use an iClicker in more than one class. You CANNOT share the same iClicker with another student because the unique ID built into it must be associated with only one name.


2.      REGISTER THE ICLICKER i clicker

·         Go to  https://www1.iclicker.com/register-clicker/  (or link from iclicker.com https://www.iclicker.com/remote-registration-form-for-classic) – see the form below
(Note for the two questions: 1) we use iClicker Classic, and 2) for this class answer "My institution does not use an LSM")

·         Enter your first name, last name and your Rutgers 9 digit student id (NOT YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER)

·         enter your clicker id  printed on a tag on the lower rear of the clicker

·         type the verification number on the screen

·         you will see an on-screen message confirming that registration was successful. Your rutgers ID is now tied to your unique iclicker ID.

·         If you are using iClicker in another class, you need register only once for both classes.

·         If you lose your clicker and get another, you must register again (and tell me)

·         In class, turn it on with the on/off button – the solid blue power light will go on

·         When requested, respond to a question by pressing one of the A,B,C,D,E buttons – a green light will go on to show your response has been recorded.(a red light will go on if it has not been received, say if you try it at home)

·         No other students will know your response.
