UC San Diego Currently Uses

  • Easy-to-use interface

  • Performance and participation points are exported to TritonEd (formerly Ted) separately
  • Useful Excel reports

Update to version 7.8.0

The new version 7.8.0 has a few new features and bug-fixes, but is an optional upgrade for 7.4.5 users.  (Users of pre-7.4.5 versions should definitely upgrade.)

Select and download version 7.8.0. i>clicker software alone or version 7.8.0. i>clicker plus the files needed to integrate i>clicker with TritonEd, the UC San Diego learning management system. See "Installing iclicker on Mac and Windows" for 7.8.0 installation instructions.

Visit the i>clicker help page for up-to-date information about i>clicker issues and updates.

Upgrading from Version 6?

If you are between quarters in your use of i>clickers, download version 7 to a new folder on your computer. If you are done uploading data from your old i>clicker software, you can delete the version 6 folder. (You can keep the version 6 folder, but take care not to accidentally use the old version in the future.)

If you have already started using i>clicker version 6.3 or earlier in conjunction with TritonEd in a class this quarter, your class voting results are not compatible with version 7. Rather than updating to version 7, update to version 6.4.2 at the bottom of this page to upload your clicker scores to TritonEd until the term is over.

Version 6

Required Software Update

If you have started the quarter using i>clicker version 6.3 or earlier in conjunction with TritonEd in a class, your class voting results are not compatible with version 7. Instead of updating to v.7, in order to upload your clicker scores to TritonEd you need to update to version 6.4.2 below.

Follow the update instructions for your operating system. The instructions include transferring your existing class results into the updated software. After the quarter ends, update to version 7 for the following quarter.

Version 6.4.2 for Mac

  1. Download the Mac version 6.4.2 .dmg file to your hard drive.
  2. Double-click the .dmg file, which will place a Disc Image on your desktop.
  3. Double-click to open Disc Image to see the i>clicker application folder.
  4. Open the Applications folder: from the Finder menu, click Go, then select Applications.
  5. Drag the iclicker folder into Applications.
  6. Drag the Classes folder from your old i>clicker folder to the new 6.4.2 folder.
  7. Delete any shortcuts you might have to the old software on your Mac from your dock or desktop.
  8. To make the new i>clicker and i>grader apps available to launch from the Mac dock, open the new 6.4.2 iclicker folder in Applications and drag the iclicker.app and igrader.app files to your dock.

Remember, if you create a new class in version 6, to interface with TritonEd go to the LMS/Reg tab in My Settings in i>clicker and select Blackboard – Version 8 (and above). After you’ve used the new 6.4.2 software for a while and see all of the scores you need in it, feel free to delete the old software.

Note: 

When first starting the i>clicker software, you may get an error message similar to this one:

Unknown developer message

If you do, to open i>clicker, go to System Preferences on the Apple menu, choose Security & Privacy, and click on Open Anyway.

Version 6.4.2 for Windows

  1. Download the Windows version 6.4.2 zip file to your hard drive.
  2. Open the .zip file, choose to extract all files and select a location. We recommend extracting to a new folder on your desktop.
  3. Drag the Classes folder from your old i>clicker folder to the new 6.4.2 folder.
  4. If you have shortcuts to the old software on your desktop or elsewhere, delete those shortcuts.
  5. Make shortcuts for the new versions of i>clicker or i>grader if desired.

Remember, if you create a new class in version 6, to interface with TritonEd go to the LMS/Reg tab in My Settings in i>clicker and select Blackboard – Version 8 (and above). After you’ve used the new 6.4.2 software for a while and see all of the scores you need in it, feel free to delete the old software.
