For Instructors: How do I install iClicker for use with Canvas?

Special Note to Faculty: If you and your students don’t already own the iClicker hardware, we highly recommend that you use Poll Everywhere instead of iClicker. Poll Everywhere is a more robust and versatile tool and is available to Tufts faculty and students at no cost. Please note that Tufts will be phasing out support of iClicker at the end of the 2021-2022 academic year.

NOTE: our current Tufts-custom version of iClicker for Mac iOS, has not been confirmed as compatible with Mac iOS Catalina.  Because of this, we recommend that Tufts iClicker users not install iOS Catalina at this time.  During summer 2020 we will upgrade the Tufts-custom version of iClicker to be Catalina compatible.

We will post a notice here when that upgrade is complete.
