Important i>clicker Product Changes

Thursday, November 13 by IMG

Posted in i>clicker |
Comments Off

From i>clicker:

1. All i>clicker remotes will now ship with a complimentary digital access code.

Both the i>clicker 2 remote and the i>clicker + remote will no longer be available as standalone products. i>clicker will now offer a package for both i>clicker + and i>clicker 2 that includes a standard remote and complimentary access to our digital solution, i>clicker GO.

This change is in response to feedback from our clients, as well as research that shows providing both a standard remote and a digital solution allows for a smoother transition to a digital classroom. If WiFi infrastructure in particular classrooms is not sufficient for a digital solution, students have access to hardware as an alternative.

2.  As of December 31, 2014, students who purchase a used remote will be charged a one-time fee of $6.99 to register their remote on our national database at iclicker.com.

Annually, 50% of our remote registrations are from students with a used remote. In order to continue delivering support to all of our student clients, this fee is needed to cover our costs.

Students can purchase a remote registration code via your campus bookstore on a physical card or online through the i>clicker registration Web page.

PLEASE NOTE: At this time, the used remote registration fee does not apply to students who register their remotes through a Learning Management System (LMS) or via a locally-hosted database. This will change for subsequent semesters.

i>clicker and SSL v3 Vulnerability

Thursday, October 16 by IMG

Posted in i>clicker |
Comments Off

From i>clicker:

You have likely heard of the recent potential security vulnerability of SSL v3. As an appreciated and valued customer, we wanted to let you know as soon as possible that we are aware of this issue and let you know that your faculty users could experience issues using i>clicker as a result of this vulnerability.

Technical Explanation: i>clicker software versions 6.4.1 and earlier utilize the SSL v3 communication protocol. As a result, clients using i>clicker 6.4.1 and earlier versions of i>clicker may experience issues with LMS integrations, which includes roster sync and grade upload. So far, we have reports of issues with Canvas, Sakai, and Blackboard due to these companies disabling this communication protocol to mitigate any potential risk for secure http (https) connections.

Steps we are taking:  We are diligently working on an update, v6.4.2, which will utilize a different security protocol to replace SSLv3. All i>clicker 6.x (and earlier) users will need to update to this version to avoid disruptions with LMS integrations. This update should be available sometime next week. In the interim, instructors can continue to use i>clicker 6.4.1 with manual LMS integration rather than i>clicker integrate if it is necessary for them to sync a roster or upload grades. We plan to communicate with faculty tomorrow afternoon to alert them of this issue as well.

There remain some potential issues that relate to this same issue:

  • i>clicker GO communicates with the GO servers using SSL v3. We are going to be updating the GO communication protocol and anticipate no issues with the usage of GO in class.
  • The i>clicker registration database also uses SSL v3 to communicate with i>grader for Sync and other functionality. Again, we anticipate no issues with registration data communications.

We are monitoring the situation very closely and will update you immediately if necessary. As soon as the software update is available, we will communicate directly with you.

Thank you for your support of i>clicker. If you have any questions or concerns, please reply to this message or call, and we’ll be back in touch right away.

Sincerely,

Sarah and the i>clicker team
