Upgrade to Campus "Clicker" System and Training Dates

Thursday, March 17, 2016

Turning Technologies will no longer be supporting our current "clicker system" platform, TurningPoint 5.  Due to this, UNCW is upgrading to TurningPoint Cloud.   ITS has been testing this new version and working with the vendor to ensure that the latest version is ready for deployment before the fall 2016 semester. 

 Representatives from Turning Technologies will be on campus April 12 and April 13 for training.  If you would like to get a jump start on viewing new features, upgrades and setting up your Turning account, please attend one of these sessions.  You may register for a session by clicking here.

 If you are unable to attend one of the April sessions, additional information on trainings regarding TurningPoint Cloud will follow soon.  In the meantime, please check out this online tutorial from Turning Technologies. 

 The software functions just as it did before with the following Features and Upgrades:

  • Streamlined registration process with Turning Accounts
  • Bundles of a device and Turning Account that includes the free mobile app
  • Ability to create a blended environment with both devices and mobile
  • Secure login and data encryption for security
  • New question types including word maps
  • Ability to reserve sessions
  • Existing lessons and question lists will work in the new version
