Getting Started with TurningPoint

Changes for Fall 2017

  • The Fall 2017 Blackboard system is configured to work with TurningPoint Cloud (version 7.5 or higher) or TurningPoint 8. Click here for more information on checking your version and updating.

  • Syracuse is now using a new sign-on method called Single Sign-On (SSO). You will now use your SU NetID and password to sign-on to TurningPoint rather than a password created at the TurningTechnologies website. This new method is both more convenient and more secure.

  • Click here for updated pricing and syllabus statements.
  • If your students will be using clickers, contact the SU Bookstore with the approximate number of students and the type of clicker you require.

Engagement is the Goal!

Student Response Systems or "Clickers" are used to engage students in presentations by allowing them to respond to questions and interact with the content through the use of a remote keypad. Whether it's to gauge the comprehension in the classroom, take a poll, or review for an upcoming assessment, clicker technology can be used in any number of creative ways.
