Mobile Applications

The MSB Tech Center now supports the iClicker Reef application. Various professors will be using it in classes starting September 2019.

The iClicker Reef student experience is universal and independent of the instructor software preference (iClicker Cloud or iClicker Classic). It's important that students include their Student ID when setting up their accounts. You may have different Student IDs on campus; this would be the one associated with Canvas.

2. Sign up and create an iClicker Reef account.

3. When creating an account, select Georgetown University McDonough School of Business as the institution.

4. Include your Canvas Student ID when creating your account

5. After creating an account, login to iClicker Reef using your new iClicker Reef credentials.

6. Click Add a Course.

7. Select the same institution name used in step 3.

8. Search for your instructor's name, your course name, and select your course.

9. Click Add This Course

Below are instructions for instructors using the iClicker Cloud:

1. Visit https://www.iclicker.com/downloads/iclicker-cloud and select the instructor software that is right for you (PC or Mac). Download the most current version of the software to your device.

2. Extract the download and place the iClicker Cloud application on your computer or flash drive.

3. Launch the application; create an iClicker Cloud account or login if you have an existing iClicker Cloud account. Select Georgetown University McDonough School of Business as the institution.

4. Create a new course. Ensure that the institution in the “Your Institution” field is Georgetown University McDonough School of Business.

Data Services

MSB supports a wide variety of database services. Many are licensed and accessed directly from MSB account. Others are managed by Lauinger Library and are accessed through them. For a full list of Lauinger Library database services go to the Lauinger Library web site.

There are various conditions and procedures to access MSB database services. They vary depending on what service is required and user status as student, faculty or staff.

MSB database resources are for academic use only. Academic use is defined as use by student, faculty, or staff members of the McDonough School of Business as a part of the Georgetown curriculum or Georgetown faculty research. Access is routinely extended on a case-by-case basis to all Georgetown faculty if the academic use criteria is met and the additional use will not impact MSB use.

Application for access to all MSB data resources is through the MSB Technology Center via e-mail to msbhelp@georgetown.edu. The process is informal. Please call 202-687-4721 with questions.

Below is a list of MSBTC supported data services and a brief description.

Data services that are accessible through MSB Wharton Research Data Services (WRDS) are marked. MSB WRDS subscriptions are available on request from MSB.

Salesforce

Salesforce is a cloud-based Customer Relationship Management (CRM) application that allows Georgetown McDonough School of Business (MSB) to store, track, manage, and build better relationships with constituents from one place. It provides a picture of what our engagements look like with our contacts (alumni, current students, and external relations). With Salesforce, Georgetown McDonough can discover countless ways of cultivating these relationships and finding unique and valuable opportunities.
