Syllabus Statement

Use the following syllabus examples to inform your students about the use of Clickers in your class:

Face to face classes with polling on mobile devices permitted

This class utilizes the iClicker system to enhance learning and reward participation in class discussions. You may want to use a physical iClicker, which are available new at the book store or used through various local and online retailers. They are also available for a semester-long check out from the library on a first come, first served basis. You may also use your mobile device (phone or tablet app, or via a computer web browser) to participate in class activities.

Regardless of which modality you choose to use, you will need to create an iClicker Student account and, if you have one, link your iClicker to it in order for your clicker grade to be counted in my gradebook. Make sure you are using the account linked to your CU email account. You can check this by logging out of all your iClicker accounts on all mobile devices you may be using.  Then, log back in, using the iClicker Campus Portal option at the bottom of the registration page.

You will not need to purchase an iClicker Student subscription to use mobile polling for Fall 2021.  Using the student app, you can review questions asked in class, how you answered them, what your current iClicker score is, and many other features.

The blue sticker indicates that the receiver has newest firmware and is necessary for compatibility with the campus CUClicker service and to record student data.
