Students will need to register their i>clicker remotes on Canvas. To do so, students will need to click the i>clicker Registration tool in the course navigation menu. They will then be prompted to enter their 8-digit i>clicker remote ID, located under the barcode on the back of their clicker, their email, and country. This information allows their i>clicker remote to be linked to their UMich account and ID. Detailed instructions for students can be found here. Student help is available from BlueCorps.
To add the i>clicker Registration tool to a course navigation menu, follow the steps below.
Login to your Canvas course site.
Click Settings at the bottom of the course navigation menu.
Click the Navigation tab.
Find i>Clicker Registration in the bottom list.
In order to enable the tool, drag and drop i>Clicker Registration from the bottom list to the top list.
Once you have enabled the i>clicker Registration plugin for your Canvas course, open the gradebook for your course in the i>clicker software and click sync roster. All registered students will then appear in blue. If a student has not registered their i>clicker remote on Canvas, their name will appear in red. It is best practice to regularly re-sync the course roster in the i>clicker gradebook throughout the first few weeks of class in order to update student remote registrations. You will also need to resync the roster if students lose their remotes and have to purchase and register a new one. Students should keep both registrations active - they can add the new one without removing the old one, to ensure that they get the points for answering questions with both devices.
NOTE: There is no way to see student remote ID’s from within Canvas. This information is only available from the “Report” function within the i>clicker software. Unlike the Export Function which only produces a csv with session grades, Reports will generate a csv or HTML document that includes both individual student responses and student’s remote ID’s, if you select it.
