TurningPoint - Students
TurningPoint is a presentation, teaching and lecturing tool that sits within Microsoft PowerPoint. It allows staff to communicate with students interactively by asking them multiple choice questions to which they can reply using a keypad handset. It collects audience responses in real time and creates detailed reports for analysis at the touch of a button.

A very useful resource is the TurningTechnologies website where they have manuals for different versions of the software and information on loading TurningPoint onto Macs.
How do I book the TurningPoint equipment?
TurningPoint has been loaded on PCs in the pooled teaching rooms. To access it you need to click on Start>All Programs> Common Applications>TurningPoint. You will need to book the handsets and receivers through OBIS.
