Resources for Web Registration:
MSU uses an internal web registration system that allows us to synchronize student
clickers and course rosters more effectively. Please make sure students register their
clickers at the MSU web registration site, listed below.

Using iClickers on both a Mac and Windows PC:
Not a problem if your classroom has a Windows PC and your office has a Mac - the iClicker
files are compatible across the systems, but you must do a simple setup with the folders
and applications on your USB drive in order for this to work properly.
