UWL supports iClicker Classic and iClicker Cloud 5. iClicker Classic is the hardware based solution and iClicker Cloud 5 is a cloud based non-hardware solution. iClicker Classic is classroom restricted requiring students to be in the classroom and iClicker Cloud 5 is cloud based and allows students to participate using a wireless internet connection with any laptop, smartphone, or tablet to respond to questions either in the classroom or outside the classroom. With Cloud 5, faculty create their material online with a free registered account. Students using Cloud 5 will need purchase a subscription and set up an account. The UWL bookstore no longer carries the iClicker remotes but they can purchase Cloud 5 subscriptions through the bookstore. Subscriptions are available in increments of 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, or 4 years. We encourage faculty and students to use the Cloud 5 version which is more convenient, versatile and integrates seamlessly with Canvas 5. This is not the case with iClicker Classic.
Both iClicker Classic and Cloud 5 can work together as a hybrid solution if needed. For assistance with this, please contact the Help Desk at 608-785-8774.
