Important news for TurningPoint users: TurningPoint is changing
On July 1, Turning Technologies, the maker of BU’s audience-response system (clicker) software, will make a major change to its approach. The company will update us to TurningPoint Cloud, which is designed to make audience-response technology work better with mobile-phone apps (to make it less necessary to purchase standalone clickers). The TurningPoint software will not change; there will need to be an update, but it will run the same. The main change is that as of July 1, students and instructors will need to get Turning accounts (akin to Apple accounts), via the TurningPoint site. The site requires a “school code”, which will be assigned to us before July 1.
