iClicker Workshop

Did you know that York University is now supporting an iClicker tool that you can use for free in your class (face-to-face and online)? The iClicker tool, iClicker Cloud, is a mobile teaching platform to engage your students in real time to provide instant feedback and promote active learning.  Students can participate using their smart phones, tablets, or laptops.

This 90-minute hands-on workshop is a technical and pedagogical quickstart guide on using iClicker in teaching.  During the workshop, you will experience the iClicker from both instructor’s and student’s perspective. You will set up your iClicker account and practice adding various activities using iClicker.
