Turning Technologies is the recognized leader of Student Response Systems for Higher Education. Their innovative leadership has given them the opportunity to partner with over half of the Colleges and universities throughout the United States. Their products can also be found in over 94 countries.
The latest version of TurningPoint is the “Cloud,” with one simple interface for polling in PowerPoint, polling in any application, and self-paced polling. TurningPoint is an easy-to-use desktop polling application tied to a cloud-based interface available for Mac or PC. Users of the Cloud must create an account. Students can register their devices through Canvas. Instructors will include requirements for the Clickers in the syllabus.
Clickers and the required license can be purchased at the UTM bookstore, or at the company website at https://www.turningtechnologies.com/higher-education. The support telephone number is 1.866.746.3015.
Instructors should notify the ITC that they will be using clickers, and allow us time to be sure the necessary software has been installed in the classrooms being used.
Company tutorials are found at Video Tutorials - https://www.turningtechnologies.com/support/turningpoint-cloud/tutorials.
A Getting Started kit with implementation documents, syllabus suggestions, email templates, student resignation instructions and other user guides can be found at https://www.turningtechnologies.com/instructor.
