What is the student response system?

The Turning Technologies student response system allows instructors to ask questions and collect responses by students with clicker devices or with a mobile device via TurningPoint™ mobile app. The instructor uses a receiver and software to collect responses, track students, or poll anonymously.

Users can:

  • Poll in Powerpoint (Powerpoint Polling)
  • Poll in any application (Anywhere Polling)
  • Self-paced Polling for quizzes and exams.

This system can import rosters directly from  Sakai with the new Turning Technologies-Sakai integration and can  export scores to the Sakai Gradebook or Post 'em tools. With Results Manager, instructors can track performance and attendance.
