These guides are intended to provide you with the assistance needed to operate the Turning Technologies hardware and polling software.
Video Instructions for TurningPoint PowerPoint Polling
TurningPoint PowerPoint Polling is one of the applications included within the TurningPoint 5 Audience Response Systems package. PowerPoint Polling opens as an add-in to Microsoft Power-Point. The polling questions are inserted into slides and can be used along with your other lecture slides.
Video Instructions for TurningPoint Anywhere Polling
TurningPoint Anywhere is one of the applications included within the TurningPoint 5 Audience Response Systems package. Anywhere Polling can be used to poll within any application, including web pages, videos, and documents to receive immediate feedback from participants.
ResponseWare turns a participant’s web-enabled mobile device into a virtual ResponseCard. Participants are able to respond to polling questions using a Wi-Fi or data connection.
PresenterCard is a radio frequency hardware clicker that interacts with TurningPoint assessment software. It allows presenters the ability to be mobile in a classroom while polling a classroom/audience. In addition, presenters have the ability to customize the device to control how they operate polling.
Turning Technologies Clicker – Desire2Learn Integration
TurningPoint integrates with Springboard (D2L) so that instructors for example may record Clicker results in the Springboard Grade Book.
