Turning Technologies (Clickers) Training Sessions

As we head into the summer term, we will be transitioning to TurningPoint Cloud, which is the latest version of the software. With this transition, there will be a few changes - namely, students will now have the option to use a clicker or a mobile device with an access code. Another change is that all users, faculty and students, will need to create an account through Turning Technologies to access future software downloads.

Most of the features you have come to enjoy about TurningPoint will remain unchanged.  However, to ensure that users are aware of the changes, the University Teaching Center has scheduled a number of training sessions for your convenience.
