What is Turning?
TurningPoint from Turning allows instructors to ask participants interactive questions, more commonly known as “clicker questions”, in live sessions. These questions serve a wide variety of functions ranging from tracking attendance and increasing engagement to delivering quizzes, surveys and exams. It allows you to collect responses, feedback and choices from students answering on their mobile devices or a web browser.
Why use it?
Asking questions can promote increased interaction and student engagement, while also allowing you to check understanding of concepts during a class.
How do I ask an interactive question?
There are several ways you can use TurningPoint to ask questions, depending on how you teach.
How can students respond?
Students can respond using the Turning app on a phone, tablet, or accessing the weblink http://ttpoll.eu on any web browser.
Students respond by entering their answer on their individual device. These answers are gathered and compiled into a chart. This chart can be instantly displayed on screen, along with the correct answer choice. This provides both student and instructor with valuable real time feedback.
Turning also run regular webinars. See https://www.turning.com/webinar to sign up to participate.
