Turning Point

TurningPoint is a PowerPoint add-on that allows you to integrate real-time polls into your presentations. There are many slide types such as multiple choice, short answer, numeric, true/false, matching, essay, and so forth. Students use a URL to respond to a poll. 

Instructors use TurningPoint to engage students and gauge understanding of topics. It allows students that are normally passive to actively participate in class. As an instructor you gain valuable feedback through visual reports. 

Getting Started

Request a license from IT Services by submitting a Software Request Form. Once they process your request, you will receive instructions on installing the software on your computer.
