Faculty Clicker Orders:

In order to assure that clickers are on the shelves for the first day of class, instructors should place an order with the UC San Diego Bookstore no later than 1 to 2 weeks prior to the beginning of each quarter. Same day requests can be accommodated, depending on stock at hand.

Student Clicker Purchase:

Clickers are available adjacent to the textbook info counter in the Bookstore, or can be purchased new or used online. (When used clickers are purchased, if the instructor does not use TritonEd the student will need to pay iClicker a used-clicker registration fee).

Clicker Sell-Back:

Students may sell their used clicker back to the Bookstore if the Bookstore needs extras, which is usually the case.

Syllabus Suggestions

Although most students already have registered clickers, we suggest that you put clear instructions in your syllabus about a deadline for students to register their clickers and an explanation of how to do this.

  • If you are using TritonEd, here are instructions to give your students:
    • How to register your clicker in TritonEd:

      4. Click the register button. 
  • If you are not using TritonEd, instruct students to register their clicker on the iclicker.com website.

REEF Wireless App

To allow students to use the REEF wireless app, an instructor needs to enable REEF in the iClicker software. (You will only see the REEF Polling tab in your settings if you have downloaded iClicker 7.10 or higher from the Downloading and Installing page.)

Students can get information about creating a REEF account and registering for a class from this iClicker support article
