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 Canvas 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.

3. Add 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 Canvas, here are instructions to give your students:

If you are not using Canvas, instruct students to register their clicker on the website.
