  1. Status? I see there are duplicate pages for this building block within Confluence. UMA will need iClicker in production for our SPR13 term. I've heard that this might be delayed by the vendor determining how to license in multi-tenancy?

  2. UMass Dartmouth is listed as stakeholders, but not as an interested campus. We had previously expressed interest and would like to have access to the building block as well if possible.

     

  3. I initially had issues setting this up on a mac. Each time I tried to sync with Blackboard, I would receive a validation error.  I found this is because of the security setting on macs.  You need to download the zip, copy the files to the resources folder of the iclicker software.  Go into iclicker and setup your course, go to my settings and select Blackboard and then Version 8 or higher.  Select for course. Then close out.  Now go to the resources folder and find the integration wizard.  Control click then select open.  This will cause the mac to treat it as a security exception.  Complete the login information.  

    We still need to test the official key. I believe this is for the entire environment and not course based.
