Manage Course Settings


After you download iClicker Cloud make sure you adjust your course settings, which are specific to each individual course in your iClicker Cloud instructor account. You can modify your settings either in the desktop software or on the instructor website.


Option 1: Access the Course Settings on the Instructor Website

  • Sign in to the iClicker Cloud instructor website. Select your course, then select Settings.

Option 2: Access the Course Settings in the Desktop Software

  • Select Settings... from the course actions menu.

Course Settings Are Organized into Six Tabs:

  • Course Details
  • Devices
  • Attendance
  • Polling
  • Quizzing
  • Integrations

Course Details

The Course Details tab includes a Course Type section to select if a course will include Polling, Quizzing, and Attendance, or Attendance-only. New iClicker Cloud courses by default include Polling, Quizzing, and Attendance activities. 


The Devices tab allows instructors to determine how students will participate in the course.


In the Attendance tab of your course settings, you will see options for Take Attendance with Class Sessions, Alerts, Auto-Run, Location, and iClicker Remotes.


You can customize settings for sharing poll information with students, scoring, and the polling toolbar to meet the needs of your course. Changes made to these settings will apply to all future sessions.


If you are running quizzes in class, simply select how many points students will earn for each correct answer. Changes made to these settings will apply to all future sessions.


The Integrations tab allows instructors to turn on grade sync integration for their courses. After turning grade sync on and selecting your platform (Blackboard, Brightspace by Desire2Learn, Canvas, Moodle, Sakai, LaunchPad, or Sapling Learning), you'll receive customized instructions to complete the grade sync integration setup for the selected platform.
