How iClickers and SRSs Can Help in the Classroom
iClickers or Student Response System (SRS) is a classroom technology that provides professors with instant feedback on student responses to in-class polling questions and quizzes. CSULB has adopted the iClicker system on our campus to support student learning.
Student response technology has proven to be a valuable tool for both teaching and learning, and helps:
- Promote active learning
- Engage students in the lesson
- Provide feedback to the instructor
- Provide feedback to the students
- Boost class participation and improve attendance
- Integrate results with BeachBoard
In addition to these User Guides and FAQs, we have many support options available. Please contact us with any questions or concerns that you have regarding iClicker, whether you are a student or instructor.
Our office is located in AS-120 and we are open for drop-in or appointments from 8am - 8pm Monday thru Thursday, and 8am - 5pm on Friday.
iClicker Mobile App (iClicker REEF or REEF Polling)
The iClicker Reef mobile app polling feature is not supported by ATS at this time. However, you may enable the feature and allow your students to purchase an iClicker Reef Student Access subscription, however, if you need assistance or have issues with this feature, please contact iClicker.com.
Please consider the following:
Using the iClicker Reef mobile app polling feature relies on the student mobile device’s ability to access to a wireless data service or the campus Wi-Fi network. If for some reason their mobile network or campus network malfunctions, student votes will not be sent.
Students using the iClicker Reef mobile app do not have to be physically in the room, to participate in polls when using the mobile application, so this may not be the best option if you are using it for attendance.
