Turning Technologies Documentation

TurningPoint is an Audience Response software package offered by Turning Technologies, allowing you to respond to polling questions in classroom lectures.


Important: You must follow these directions precisely. Failure to do so will result in the inability to use your device.

Step 1: Purchase a Turning license or Clicker from the bookstore on campus.

  • If you have a smart device (iPhone, iPad, Android, or BlackBerry) or a laptop and your instructor will allow you to use it in class, you will need to purchase only a Turning license from the bookstore on campus.
  • You will then need to download and install the free app for your device. Guides are available below.
  • If you are using a laptop, you only need to log into the ResponseWare site after creating an account.
  • If you do not have a smart device or your instructor does not allow the use of a smart device in class, you will need to purchase a clicker. The clickers are sold with an included Turning license.
  • When you have your clicker or Turning license, you will need to register it to your course in Brightspace.

Important: You MUST go through Brightspace. There are more details about this in Step 2.

Step 2: Follow these instructions to add the Turning license and Clicker to your course.

Step 3: Use ResponseWare on your device.
