HSU uses the Turning Point classroom response system to increase class interactivity and improve student engagement. The system also enables both students and instructors to get real-time feedback on class effectiveness.

The Turning Point system comprises a receiver and handheld input devices (clickers). Receivers are installed in all Smart Classrooms, and TurningPoint 5.1.3 software is installed on all Smart Classroom PCs and Macs. The software is backwards-compatible with previous versions of Turning Point (TurningPoint 2008 and Turning Point Anywhere.) The Turning Point system may also be integrated into Moodle for fully interactive instruction.

Clickers work wherever a computer has TurningPoint 5.1.3 version installed, together with an activated clicker receiver connected to a USB port. Once an Internet connection has been established, participant lists can be downloaded from Moodle.

Clickers are distributed through the HSU Bookstore; faculty should order the appropriate number of clickers for their class at the same time as they order textbooks - a semester ahead of when they will be needed. Turning Point clickers are fully ADA-compliant
