Faculty Clicker Orders: 
In order to assure that clickers and books are on the shelves for the first day of class, instructors must to 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 accomodated, depending on stock at hand. 

Student Clicker Purchase:
Clickers are available adjacent to the textbook info counter.

Clicker Sell-Back: 
Students may sell their used clicker back to the Bookstore if that clicker will be used the following quarter and if the Bookstore needs extra devices.

Syllabus Suggestions

We suggest that you put clear instructions in your syllabus about a deadline for registering their clickers and an explanation of how to do this.  

Registration Note:
Specify in your syllabus at which location you want your students to register their clicker:

  • If you are using Ted, instruct students to register their clicker in Ted.  
  • If you are not using Ted, instruct students to register their clicker on the i>clicker.com website.

For more information about how to integrate i>clicker with Ted, read these instructions.

In the Classroom

On the first day of class, we suggest that you explain why and how you will be using clickers in the course.  

Reinforce that students must register their clickers: 

UC San Diego's Center for Teaching Development (CTD) provides pedagogical help with clickers, and can sometimes provide clicker-trained TAs to assist with your first classes.

If no TA is available, an ACMS technician can attend the first portion of your first class to assist with questions. Request an ACMS technician at clickers@ucsd.edu or (858) 534-4120.
