Teaching Student Response System

TurningPoint Cloud

TurningPoint Cloud is an audience response system which is available in multimedia classrooms across campus. Student response systems are a great way for instructors to interact with large classrooms, providing students the opportunity to interact in ways that wouldn't otherwise be possible. Faculty can access reports after class that show which students participated, and which topics may need more class time for discussion.

How does it Work?

The TurningPoint software integrates with Microsoft Office PowerPoint. You can create interactive slides in PowerPoint, and your students respond via a TurningPoint ResponseCard or their licensed mobile device.

How Do I Obtain a Response System?

All multimedia classrooms have the TurningPoint software installed for instructor use. Students may purchase response devices through the ETSU Bookstore or online through Turning Technologies. Additionally, some departments on campus received complete sets of response devices and receivers through a Technology Access Fee (TAF) innovative project.
