Cloud convenience. Student mobile and clicker support. Added features.
Engage your students in new ways with iClicker Cloud (formerly Reef Instructor). Track attendance using GPS technology, ask target (heat map) questions, administer quizzes, and analyze student performance using a web browser. Students participate using mobile devices, laptops, and iClicker remotes. iClicker Cloud is our most advanced classroom engagement solution.
Engage students using the devices they already bring to class
With iClicker Cloud, students can participate using mobile devices, laptops, and iClicker remotes. Our native iOS and Android apps are fast and reliable. Our web application works on all modern browsers. Our iClicker remotes are best in class and carry no extra fees. And they all work seamlessly together in the same classroom.
Reliably track attendance using GPS technology
iClicker Cloud uses GPS technology to confirm students’ locations when they “check-in” to class. Simply set the location and time of your class and let iClicker Cloud do the rest. Students are reminded to check in when class starts. An attendance report is created automatically.
Enhance learning with new question types
The new question types in iClicker Cloud allow you to send a screen capture as a target (heat map) question. Students answer by tapping on the image and you get instant results. Or, use the extended short answer question and allow students to respond with up to 140 characters.
Instant student study guides
iClicker Cloud captures every question you ask in class for students to review as a study guide on their mobile devices or laptops. With no extra work by you, students leave class with a study guide. And it works with iClicker remotes too!
Save time grading
iClicker Cloud makes grading easy. Polling questions are graded during or after class by clicking the correct answer on a chart. Quizzes and tests are graded in minutes and students receive their grades instantly. You can even provide feedback for each missed quiz question and upload grades to your LMS.
Access your data from the cloud
With iClicker Cloud you don’t need to carry a flash drive or move data files. All student data is saved on our secure servers and available to you and your students anytime, anywhere. Cloud access is always free for instructors and is included when students purchase an iClicker student app subscription or an iClicker remote. And there are no data limits.

Works with the iClicker instructor remote
Requires an internet connection
Yes. iClicker Cloud supports the use of mobile devices and laptops in your class. iClicker Cloud allows for students to participate using mobile devices and laptops by default.
A: No. You do not need an iClicker base if all of your students are participating using mobile devices or laptops and you are not using the iClicker instructor remote.
Q: Why does iClicker Cloud require an internet connection if all students are participating with clickers?
A: iClicker Cloud communicates via the Internet—even when all students are participating using iClicker remotes. By communicating via the Internet, all student data (including clicker votes) is always stored on our servers and available at anytime, anywhere for instructors and students.
