CS Department Clicker Instructions


Purchasing a Clicker

For courses requiring clickers in the CS department, you'll need to purchase one of the following physical devices (NOT a phone app):

iClicker plus model iClicker 2 model iClicker original model
iClicker Plus iClicker 2 iClicker Original (discontinued)

Any of these three models will work for CS classes. We recommend purchasing one of the newer models (the iClicker plus is usually less expensive than iClicker 2). The iClicker plus model is available for purchase from the college bookstore. You can, however, purchase yours from anywhere (e.g., Amazon is fine). If you are taking multiple courses that use clickers, you only need one device.

Many courses in our department use clickers, and you can continue to use the same device for several years. When you no longer need it, you can sell it!

Registering Your Clicker

To register your iClicker device, fill out the form on the iClicker website. This registration form associates your name with the unique eight-digit hexadecimal identifier on the back of your clicker.

Please register your device early in the semester!
