What's New with TurningPoint and Clickers?

HSU has upgraded to TurningPoint Cloud clicker software, as TurningPoint Technologies, our clicker provider, no longer supports TurningPoint 5. Here's what this means for faculty and students:

Changes for Faculty

The new cloud software has a very similar interface to TurningPoint 5. It is still largely the same set of tools, with a few new features; the learning curve should be almost non-existent for most people.

Clickers :: Introducing Responseware

What is ResponseWare?

ResponseWare turns student mobile devices into virtual clickers, enabling them to respond using a Wi-Fi or data connection. Students can respond to interactive questions with any web-enabled device, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops, using any web browser; selections are immediately transferred to TurningPoint polling software. Android and iOS apps are available for both phones and tablets.

Clickers :: Training

Clicker training sessions are available at the beginning of each semester (Spring and Fall) during the week prior to school starting, or on demand. Sessions are also available throughout the year for both new users and returning users looking for a refresher. Instructional sessions, when combined, total 90 minutes and cover software installation, database and presentation creation, class information reviews, and uploading files. They can be broken into multiple shorter sessions to fit your schedule. We also do both individual and group sessions for whole departments.
