Most instructors use TurningPoint to poll students anonymously, getting quick feedback and keeping them awake engaged during class. However, TurningPoint also allows instructors to create “participant lists” ahead of time, so the responses can be tied to specific students. This opens up new possibilities, including scored competitions, games, quizzes, and more meaningful data reports. The reason that many instructors have avoided using participant lists, is simply because they didn’t want to take the time to type in each student’s name and device (remote) ID into a list. Well now, there’s a better way!
The new TurningPoint Web Registration Utility is slick and easy use, allowing students to add themselves to your class participant list. It’s all web-based, too, so students can add themselves to your list from any Internet-connected computer. If you’d like to see how it all works, check out these informative video tutorials on the Turning Technologies website. As always, you are welcome to make an appointment with us for help.
