TurningPoint by Turning Technologies is the campus-supported personal response system for classroom polling. TurningPoint Cloud is a hybrid polling option that provides secure management of courses, rosters and assessment data while integrating with Canvas. The hybrid polling offers polling from your computer (desktop or laptop, Mac OS or Windows) with a hand-held device (clicker) and mobile devices via native apps (iOS and Android) or web-browsers. Additionally, there is an option to have web only polling via the instructor TurningPoint account.
To use the TurningPoint system in a class, the instructor must have a TurningPoint instructor kit and account and the students are required to purchase a subscription from the bookstore (this enables the mobile device option with students). Purchasing the hand-held device is optional and up to the instructor.
