TurningPoint is the standardized student response system at Bloomsburg University. It integrates with Microsoft PowerPoint to create interactive presentations. It allows instructors to collect, evaluate and record students' responses instantly.
There is currently no integration with TurningPoint and BOLT. For 2014 Spring, Instructors will setup a class on the Instructor Clicker Registration site for students to register their clickers. Students will go to the Student Clicker Registration site to register their 'clickers'. Visit the links on the right side of the page for complete documentation. Please continue to check this site for updates and contact Julie Wolfe if you have questions.
