What is REEF?

REEF is a web-based solution that allows students to respond to in-class polling using their handheld device or laptop.

Supported question types:

  • multiple choice
  • numeric
  • short answers (140 characters)


For multiple choice type of questions, REEF also has the ability to work alongside the iClicker remotes, so instructors can start a polling with students using either REEF or the physical iClickers.

REEF allows students to review session contents and their answers as a study guide after class.
Upon purchasing an access code, students can log in with the REEF iOS or Android app or in their browser and respond to questions.

See here for a comparison of the iClicker software and REEF software. See here for information on the iClicker software.

Things to Consider

There are several things that you may want to consider before you start using REEF.

  • Students will need to purchase a registration code after the 14 days free trial.
  • REEF Education requires internet connection in your classroom. Check your room to make sure you have a stable internet connection.
  • REEF Education is marginally slower than the regular clicker software in collecting physical remote responses.
