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 a number of HSU's Smart Classrooms  and are also available for checkout from Classroom Technology Services  for installation in Smart Classrooms as required. TurningPoint 5.1.3 software for Mac and PC is installed on all Smart Classroom systems. This 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
