Instructors who would like to try out clickers before committing to using them in their classes can check out the clicker demo kit. Additionally, groups on campus can also check them out for use in their meetings.
TurningPoint Anywhere Polling is the option within TurningPoint that can be used over the top of any other program.
There are several different reports that instructors can run on the session files created when using TurningPoint Cloud.
At times it may be necessary for an Instructor to download a new copy of TurningPoint because of technical problems with the current installation or version of the software.
Clickers are an interactive technology that enables instructors to pose questions to students and immediately collect and view the responses of the entire class. They are often used to give quizzes, take polls, open discussions, and take attendance.
Instructors can run their clicker questions seamlessly within PowerPoint presentations by simply advancing their slides.
Anywhere Polling allows you to poll over the top of any application such as a web page, PDF, streaming video, pre-created content, etc. Anywhere Polling also allows you to poll verbal, without previously setting up questions at any time during your presentation.
When creating a PowerPoint question to use with clickers, you need to open PowerPoint with the TurningPoint toolbar, unless you’ve installed the PC Install version of the clicker software and chosen the option to always open PowerPoint with the TurningPoint toolbar.
It might be necessary to edit their session files occasionally. When using the quick poll feature of Anywhere Polling you can edit your session data to include question and answer choices for reporting purposes, or you might need to adjust which answer is considered correct.
Instructors can use Anywhere Polling in TurningPoint to poll without using PowerPoint. You can either come up with a list of questions on the fly or prepare a Question List ahead of time. If you have your list of questions prepared the questions will appear when you open and close polling.
