Personal Response Systems

iClicker

iClicker allows instructors to poll students and see responses in real time. The software can be set up in a few minutes, and used along with almost any other technology in the classroom.

Get Started

All you need to do to get started is download the latest iClicker software and unzip the file. Since the software runs out of a folder, it doesn’t need to be installed and can even run off a thumb drive. If you are interested in importing iClicker scores into Canvas, contact the CTE, centerforteaching@bc.edu, to get started.

  • Visit the iClicker website to download the latest iClicker software for Mac and PC.
  • Please note that if you are on a Mac, you will not be able to open the software in the folder where it unzips.  After you unzip the downloaded file, first create an iClicker folder on your desktop> drag the iClicker software icon into that folder (see Figure 1) > double click to open it there.
