    The latest version of the iClicker software combined with the files that make UVaCollab integration possible can be found on the Clicker site on UVaCollab. Once you have downloaded the appropriate zipped file, expand the files into a folder on your Home Directory or directly to your laptop if you don’t use the classroom computer for teaching. Click this link to join the site (requires log in to UVaCollab).
    • Download the appropriate ZIP file for either Windows or MacOS
    • Create a new folder on your Home Directory ( ) to hold your new files. The file version changes frequently, so it is a good practice to download a new set of files each semester. You can use a naming convention similar to 2018-spring-iclicker, 2018-fall-iclicker, etc., to keep the files separate.
    • Unzip the downloaded files to this directory.  Run the software directly from your new folder check for updates from within the program for optimal UVA/Sakai functionality.
  2. Install the iClicker Tool in Collab:
