If your instructor allows it, you may choose to use TurningPoint Mobile (previously known as ResponseWare) on your smartphone, tablet, or laptop instead of a physical clicker.

  Note: Using TurningPoint Mobile (previously ResponseWare) requires an Internet connection via wireless network or cellular service. Using your cellular connection may incur data charges from your mobile carrier. Additionally, if the wireless is not working for some reason in the classroom, then you will not be able to receive clicker points for that day unless you also have your physical clicker with you.

  Remember: While the app is free to download, you must have a valid Turning Account subscription (previously known as a license) in order to use TurningPoint Mobile.

Assuming that the instructor allows it, to use the app in class and receive points you must do all of the following:

  • If you did not purchase a clicker set that included the Turning Account subscription card, then you must purchase a Turning Account subscription card from the University Bookstore.
  • Create your Turning Account and add your subscription to this account.
  • Download the App to your smartphone or go to http://student.turningtechnologies.com in a web browser, log in with your Turning Account, and click on Respond.
  • Log into the TurningPoint Mobile app or website.
  • Enter the session ID provided by your instructor at the beginning of each class meeting.
  • When polling is open submit your response.

All other devices should access ResponseWare by going to http://student.turningtechnologies.com in a web browser, logging in with your Turning Account, and clicking on Respond.
