Canvas Integration - iclicker
The easiest way to register clickers is using the i>clicker tool on Canvas. Canvas integration with iclicker means you can synchronize data between i>clicker/igrader and Canvas. Students can register the i>clickers within Canvas, which also allows the instructor to download the registration and class roster from Canvas onto the igrader program. Instructors can then transfer i>clicker data and grades into the Canvas grade book.
