TurningPoint Cloud software is installed on all instrumented classroom computers. However, we recommend installing the software on a USB flash drive to ensure session data are saved. Download directions are below

Classroom Receiver Channels
Instructors are responsible for bringing their own Turning Technologies receiver into the classroom. A specific channel is assigned to each room to prevent interference with other classrooms.
Ask Meaningful Questions
Asking meaningful questions that permit students to utilize critical thinking or reveal interesting results will not only keep students attention, but will also encourage collaboration and communication.
