TURNINGPOINT CLOUD - Getting Started (Students)

Personal response devices, a.k.a. “clickers,” are a fundamental learning tool in many S&T courses such as chemistry, calculus, and physics. “Clicker points” are tied to the gradebook in whichever learning management system, or LMS, you are using.

Before you can use clickers in a course, you will first need to create a Turning Account, redeem your license, and register your device ID for any physical clicker device you purchase.

The S&T Store and Turning Technologies both have purchasing options available for students who need a license and clicker.
