TurningPoint for Students
TurningPoint is a student engagement system that allows your instructor to ask questions, take polls, give quizzes, and get feedback from students during class. TurningPoint has a clicker device and a bring-your-own-device system called ResponseWare. With ResponseWare, you can use any web-enabled device (laptops, tablets, smartphones) to participate. Both the clicker and ResponseWare also require you to purchase a Turning Account subscription. If you aren't sure which product to get for your course, check with your instructor.
