Over 7,000 Instructors are Using iClicker to Engage 1.3 million+ Students

Here’s why iClicker is the most widely used student response system in higher education.


“Compared to another solution our institution made us use, iClicker is far better designed for me. It saved me considerable time and effort vs. the other solution in setup, use, and integration with my LMS gradebook. I can ask questions on the fly too. It just works best for how I teach!

—Intro Physics Course Coordinator & Instructor


“Based on the class evaluation provided by the students, they liked the iClicker polling and the feasibility of the attendance system.”

—Psychology Instructor, University of Hawaii

"I really love the real-time feedback about how well students are grasping material as I deliver it, especially in a class with hundreds of students."

—Kari Loomis, University of Massachusetts - Amherst


“It helps to engage students, it makes them more likely to attend class, it allows for anonymous responses, the different types of responses, and students pay attention more. The screengrab of questions helps students study for the tests. Student evaluations include several comments every semester about how much they like the clicker questions.”

—Jamie Spinney, Southern Utah University, Geography

“In eight years here and multiple campus-wide software launches, I have never had a software deploy so smoothly, faculty grasp usage so easily, or have whatever problems appear to be so easy to resolve.”

—Kathy Roberts, Center for Teaching and Learning, University of North Texas

So, What Makes iClicker Special?

We know there are plenty of student response systems out there, but there are a few key strengths that set iClicker apart.

Simple Technology with Easy LMS Integration

iClicker’s user-friendly technology delivers a seamless experience for instructors and students. The floating toolbar feature provides instructors with the ability to create and ask questions on the fly, regardless of the teaching materials being used—no pre-uploading required! It’s compatible with popular learning management systems and offers multi-device support. Single sign-on (SSO) and LMS integration make it easier to sync student data, manage participation scores, and access analytics. In short, iClicker helps foster a cohesive learning environment while minimizing the need for prep work and entering data manually.

iClicker’s floating toolbar is easy-to-use, always available, and allows you to teach the way you want.

Designed for Active Learning, Not Just Polling

Research shows that engaging students in active learning is key to student success. iClicker promotes active learning by:

  1. Encouraging students to actively participate in the learning process by responding to questions, sharing their opinions, and reflecting on their understanding of the material.
  2. Providing instant feedback on student responses, allowing students to see their results and address misconceptions in real-time.
  3. Facilitating collaborative learning as students discuss questions and concepts with their classmates.
The iClicker floating toolbar for instructors shows a Group Question Multiple Choice poll selected. The toolbar overlays a student app screen of the aforementioned poll which reads Consensus Reached! and shows that 100% of group members selected answer A.

Designed Specifically for Education

The biggest difference between iClicker and other student response systems is that iClicker was designed specifically for education – created by instructors, for instructors. Influenced by the latest learning sciences and collaboration with real-world instructors, iClicker is constantly improving to fit the ways instructors teach and incorporate more active learning strategies. iClicker provides education-specific features, like scientific notation capabilities for STEM courses, that are not found within other student response systems.

Flexible and Adaptable to You

iClicker’s flexibility makes it an adaptable classroom response system that caters to a wide variety of disciplines, class sizes, and question types. Students can participate regardless of location with phones, laptops, tablets, or physical iClicker remotes.

Unified Learning Experiences with Achieve
