i>clicker offers instructors two registration methods. Your professor will choose which method you will use and instruct you accordingly. Please pay close attention to any specific registration instructions your professor has for you (e.g. which student ID to use). To register online visit the manufacturer's website.
Most instructors require you to register your i>clicker to your name/student ID at some point. Your instructor will likely tell you if s/he expects you to register your clicker in one of the first few classes of the term. Some instructors opt for students to use your i>clicker to respond to questions during class anonymously and never require students to register.
You register a used i>clicker remote in the exact same manner as a new i>clicker remote (instructions above). You need not do anything special or different in order to register a used remote. Please note the manufactures of the i>clicker charge a one-time fee of $6.99 US to register used clickers.
4. I use my i>clicker remote for multiple classes with different professors. Do I have to register online for each individual class?
No. You only need to register once online for your registration information to apply to all of the classes in which you are using i>clicker.
Yes, but you will need to register each semester.
Yes, as long as you are not taking the same class at the same time. However students have often told us that this ends up being more trouble than it is worth. You’ll use your clicker a lot over the course of 4 years so it is worth it to invest in your own.
Your i>clicker ID (or remote ID) is a series of 8 numbers and letters located the back of the remote, just below the clicker instructions. If your remote ID has rubbed off or is illegible, you can locate your remote ID by using the i>clicker lookup tool. https://www.iclicker.com/find-your-remote-id/
There is no cost. After purchasing your i>clicker, it is yours to use in as many classes as required without any additional costs or recurring registration fees.
If you used incorrect information during the Web site registration process, please register again with the correct information.
Your clicker uses 3 AAA batteries. Please DO NOT use Duracell batteries as they are shorter than other batteries and therefore not suitable for i>clicker remotes. New clickers come with batteries. These should last around 200hrs.
There is a standard one-year limited warranty on your clicker. If you are having technical issues we recommend that you contact the Technical Support Center for troubleshooting tips and guidance toll free at 866-209-5698, or you reach out to them via their inquiry form with your particular concern.
NOTE ON DEFECTIVE REMOTES: i>clicker remotes have an exceptionally low defective rate. Most remotes returned as defective simply need three new size AAA batteries. If you are having trouble with your remote, please first replace ALL THREE batteries. On occasion, the third battery will stick in the compartment and requires a tap to release it. Please DO NOT use Duracell batteries as they are shorter than other batteries and therefore not suitable for i>clicker remotes.
Yes, when they are in demand. Please check https://campusstore.mcmaster.ca/sellback.
