Clicker @ SDSU

SDSU Instructional Technology Services

Welcome to the SDSU i>clicker homepage.

If you plan to use clickers, please inform the Bookstore. They can then put it on the student list of required materials. The sooner, the better!

i>clicker
In 2011, after much research and a selection process that included input from faculty and students, SDSU standardized on the "i>clicker" product offered by MacMillan New Ventures. Instructional Technology Services (ITS) supports only MacMillan i>clicker and REEF products. Please see the "about" page for more information.

Our i>clicker software integrates with the SDSU Blackboard Grade Center. Here is the software for Fall, 2016 which includes the SDSU integration file. You can unzip these files and set up i>clicker using our Step by Step Guide. You can update your existing software version 7.0 by selecting "Check for Update" from the Help menu.

If you are unable to sync your roster from the i>clicker grade center, that may indicate you are missing the integration file. Please contact us for assistance.

REEF
REEF, formerly i>clickerGO, allows mobile devices (iOS i>clickerGo polling interface
and android) as well as web-based computers and laptops to participate in i>clicker polling sessions. This service requires very little change on the part of faculty. It's just another tab on your i>clicker set up. It is up to faculty to decide whether to enable it or not.

Students download the free REEF app or login to the REEF website. After two weeks, students must buy an activation code from the SDSU Bookstore or i>clicker.

We recommend the free two week trial to make sure REEF works for your course and your students.

REEF can also be run as a standalone meaning you will not need to use a base receiver. However, this precludes the use of handheld clickers. Faculty cannot run i>clicker or REEF sessions from a mobile device. View this short video for an overview of REEF. If you are interested in trying the standalone version, please contact us.

The REEF website can be used to manage your REEF enabled courses and edit your REEF profile.
