Frequently Asked Questions

Beginning Fall 2017, Fresno State will transition to the iClicker 2 w/ REEF Polling Access. REEF allows students to use online apps instead of iClickers. The campus has decided to support the iClicker cloud instructor software because it is more secure and offers instructors more options for utilizing polling and quizzing in their classrooms. The cloud instructor software still works with physical remotes. Because there are additional question types instructors using the cloud software can utilize, and the iClicker+ remote only allows for multiple choice, the campus decided to transition to the iClicker 2 remote, which allows students and instructors the largest variety of polling questions types. In addition, we have seen a growing interest in mobile polling systems on campus, so the campus is also now supporting iClicker's mobile polling app, iClicker REEF. REEF can be used alongside physical iClicker remotes, as part of a fully mobile classroom solution, and instructors can still have students use 100% hardware if they wish. This decision allows instructors at Fresno State to utilize polling in the way that works best for them and their students at the best cost to students.

Not necessarily. If you are enrolled in courses that does not use REEF polling, but requires an iClicker, you can still use the iClicker+ in those courses.
