TurningPoint Cloud is here!

The TurningPoint audience response system allows students to participate in Microsoft PowerPoint presentation lectures by submitting responses to interactive questions using a ResponseCard (clicker) or Responseware.

The University of Utah is supporting Turning Point Cloud, which requires you to create an account and then download the new software if using your own computer.

  • Anonymous polling with Cloud works the same as with previous versions of TurningPoint.
  • Integration with Canvas of tracked polling data from TuringPoint Cloud requires faculty and student Cloud accounts, a Cloud receiver, as well as licensed clickers or responseware
  • .

Faculty -- create an account and download the new software if using your own computer.
