Get Started with Free Attendance

Follow these simple steps and you’ll be tracking attendance in no time.

Step 1: Create your iClicker Cloud account

Step 2: Create your Attendance course

Create a course in iClicker Cloud and designate it as “Attendance-only”. 

Find detailed instructions here

Step 3: Customize your settings & preferences

Customize settings for your course: set your classroom’s geolocation (or run without geolocation!) and set Attendance to auto-run on class days.

Find detailed instructions here

Step 4: Get your students ready for class

Each student needs to create an iClicker student account then add your course to their account.

Students will need to download the iClicker student app in their App Store or Google Play. Or, when class starts, sign in at iClicker.com

When students open their iClicker student application or log in via their web browser, they’ll be prompted to join. And as a reminder, students can use the iClicker student app for Attendance-only courses for free, always!
