Signing into iClicker Classic with your SSO Security Key

As part of an ongoing effort to improve the security and stability of the integration between iClicker and UVACollab, the UVACollab team is enabling a new method for UVA users to sign into the iClicker Classic software: the SSO Security Key.

These step-by-step instructions will show you how to obtain your Security Key, how to use it to sign into the iClicker Classic software, and how to sync your rosters.

Visit the iClicker tool in your site, and copy your SSO Security Key.

To locate and copy your SSO Security Key:

  1. Visit your site, and click iClicker in the tools menu on the left side of the page.
  2. Click SSO Security Key.
  3. Click on your security key to select it, then copy it to your clipboard.

Your SSO Security Key is the same in every site in which you have added the iClicker tool. It is unique to you; you should treat it as a password, and you should not share it with anyone else.

Open the iClicker Classic software, and click Create to create a new course.

After copying your security key, open the iClicker Classic software. Don't forget to visit the Clickers site to download the latest version of the software, if you haven't done so already!

Click Create to create a new course.

Enter a name for the course, and click Create.

Enter a name for your course in the Course Name box, and click Create.

Select the course in the list, and click Settings.

Click on the course to select it, then click Settings.

Click Gradebook, then click Select Course.

The course settings will be displayed. In the list of settings near the top of the page, click Gradebook to open the gradebook settings, then click Select Course.

Enter your computing ID and SSO Security Key, and click Log In.

Enter your computing ID into the LMS Username box, paste your SSO Security Key from the iClicker tool in UVACollab into the Security Key box, and click Log In.

If you'd like to save your computing ID and Security Key so that you don't have to enter them each time, select Save my credentials and automatically log me in before clicking Log In. 

Select the course in the list, then click Select.

Click on the correct course to select it, then click Select.

Click Save.

Your selected course will now be listed on the page. Click Save to save your changes.

Open the gradebook, and click Sync Roster to sync your roster.

You will return to the startup screen in iClicker Classic. Click on the course to select it, then click Open Gradebook. In the list of options at the top of the gradebook, click Sync Roster to sync your course in iClicker Classic with the membership of your site in UVACollab.
