It is not required to purchase a clicker as you may rather use a web-enabled device to respond to clicker questions in class.

To participate in class you need;

  1. A web-enabled device such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop.
  2. An active internet connection, either WiFi, 3G or your own data connection.
  3. A Turning Account.

We recommend you create your TurningPoint student account by following the TurningPoint Registration link from within your module.

The process is this:

  1. Sign into ClickUP and navigate to your course
  2. Select “Tools” in the left-hand pane
  3. Find the “TurningPoint Registration” link and select it
  4. Sign in to their TurningPoint account with the same email used for ClickUP.
  5. When you’ve logged in IGNORE the ‘Subscription request’, and click on the Finish button. (see image on right)

Each student only needs to do this once, even if you are using TurningPoint in multiple courses. Your ClickUP username and user ID will be linked to your student TurningPoint account. The connection will remain on your account between semesters.

Participating in Class once I have a Turning Account:

  1. Log into TurningPoint either via the iOS App, Android App or type https://ttpoll.eu/ into your browser with the same email used for ClickUP.
  2. Please ensure that you select the Europe/Africa/Middle East/Russia region.
  3. Your Instructor will supply a ‘session ID’.
