Introduction to i>clicker Version 6.1

Congratulations on your adoption of i>clicker, the easiest-to-use classroom response system available. This guide will enable you to quickly start using i>clicker’s basic functions, as well as learn to use its more advanced features. Before you begin using i>clicker, please read the important How to Use This Guide section below for information on how to quickly get started.

i>clicker version v6.1 includes many improvements to i>clicker and i>grader, including support for numeric and alphanumeric responses using the i>clicker2 remotes. The upgrade to i>clicker v6.1 is only required if your students have purchased i>clicker2 remotes and you plan to ask numeric or alphanumeric questions in your classroom. If you do not plan to ask numeric or alphanumeric questions, you may continue to use the i>clicker 5.x software.

The i>clicker v6.1 upgrade impacts both the Windows and Macintosh operating systems. The upgrade will not affect the data in your existing iclicker Win or iclicker Mac folders.


IMPORTANT: If you are upgrading from i>clicker version 5.3 or earlier, you should refer to the section Converting from i>clicker 5.3 or Earlier of this guide.
