What is TurningPoint?

TurningPoint Cloud lets you conduct polls during class with your students. It integrates seamless polling with PowerPoint and can overlay applications, self-paced tests, evaluations, and surveys. Available for Mac or PC,  you can conduct real-time assessments to track progress, instantly view results, and collect valuable data.

Where do you go to use it?

TurningPoint needs to be installed on a Mac or PC. From there you can integrate polling questions into your slide deck or view/export the results of your polling to your gradebook.
