Clickers in Summer 2015

TurningPoint Cloud—More information and a new design for this website coming soon!

During the Summer sessions, all Technology Classrooms are being upgraded to include TurningPoint Cloud on the classroom computers, and all Students and Instructors will need to have Turning Accounts. Summer Session students will receive directions from their instructors on what they need to do to use clickers in the classroom during Summer classes. Look for more information here in a few weeks, and be ready for Fall 2015.

Students can register their Turning Accounts Here:

ResponseWare is the mobile device add-in for use with TurningPoint polling. Last summer, students and faculty who have ResponseWare accounts were prompted to create a new and more secure password when they log in to their accounts. More detailed directions can be found in these "ResponseWare 2.0 Migration" directions.

1. Click here to go to the Registration site.

2. Click on the "Register Your Clicker" button (to register both clickers and ResponseWare licenses).

3. When prompted, log in to ELMS as you normally do, using your Directory ID and password.

4. If you are prompted with a Security Warning, click "Continue."

5. Enter your clicker ID or your ResponseWare license device ID.

6. Enter the security code, displayed, and then click "Register Device."

And that's it!
