Whether you're a seasoned "clicker" user or someone who's always wondered if a student response system could increase interaction with your students, up-coming sessions with our TurningPoint representative will provide an opportunity to learn more and sharpen your skills. Instructors use clickers for attendance, polling, in-class quizzes and tests and even peer-instruction. Others use clickers for games and to keep students actively involved in class. Students may purchase a physical "clicker" or use an app on their mobile device. TurningPoint integrates with presentation software like Microsoft Powerpoint, as well as Canvas.
On September 25th and 26th, just in time to prepare for the fall quarter, TurningPoint will offer four sessions designed for new and seasoned users to explore the polling application: creating polling slides, running a polling presentation, saving results, and viewing student data. Student response options, clickers, and mobile devices will also be discussed. Additionally, the direct integration with Canvas will be demonstrated. This integration allows you to easily connect your Canvas roster into TurningPoint for student tracking as well as uploading points directly back to your Canvas gradebook.
