Video Instructions for TurningPoint Anywhere Polling
TurningPoint Anywhere is one of the applications included within the TurningPoint 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 Response Card. Participants are able to respond to polling questions using a Wi-Fi or data connection.
A Presenter Card 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.
