Turning Point ClickerTurning Point

Looking for a new way to keep your students engaged during class? Want to encourage a more interactive classroom atmosphere? Would you like to be able to do quick checks on how well your students comprehend the lecture material?
This is the tool for you! With Turning Point clickers (aka response devices) that you check out from the FTC, your students’ responses can be automatically entered into PowerPoint. Learn all about these Turning Point devices and how they interact directly with PowerPoint to insert data and how you can incorporate that into your presentations.

Contact Marion Wielgosz, ext. 2442, for a brief training or to reserve clickers for your class.

Poll Everywhere

Poll Everywhere offers a hardware-free alternative to the Turning Point clickers that we provide.

Poll Everywhere is a simple application that works well for live audiences using mobile devices like phones. People participate by visiting a fast mobile-friendly web page for your event, sending text messages, or using Twitter. Instructions are displayed on-screen. The poll that is embedded within the Powerpoint presentation or web page will update in real time. Advanced uses include texting comments to a presentation, texting questions to a presenter, web voting, and SMS interactivity in print, radio, and TV.
