Experience iClicker as a Student


Students vote in https://student.iclicker.com Polling sessions using a laptop, smart phone, or tablet. https://student.iclicker.com Polling also supports hybrid classrooms by allowing students to register and use an iClicker compatible device. You can use your instructor credentials to experience https://student.iclicker.com Polling as a student. 

Note: Physical clickers are no longer supported at Boise State. We recommend using mobile devices (laptops, cell phones, and tablets) for engaging synchronously and asynchronously.
