Engage Students Through Active Learning

Audience response devices, or Clickers, are designed to actively engage students during the entire class period, gauge students' level of understanding of presented material, and provide prompt feedback to the instructor, who can easily upload a grade to Blackboard from polled responses (TurningPoint software required).

TurningPoint AnyWhere allows the creation of instant polling questions from Web, PDF, Microsoft Office content and more. Create quizzes and interactive presentations for current and future classes using the TurningPoint software.

Both TurningPoint and TurningPoint AnyWhere downloads are free and compatible with PC or Mac. Turning Technologies has an array of resources and videos to help you decide which software is appropriate.

Turning Technologies Response Card NXT is the recommended and supported audience response device at ECU. Students purchase this product through the Dowdy Student Stores.

Powered by two AAA batteries (battery life six months) and operating up to 200 feet away from the receiver, NXT Response Options include:

  • Alphanumeric
  • Multidigit
  • Decimal point
  • Positive/negative
  • Self-paced testing
  • Short text response

For more information on using audience response systems in your classroom, contact the Instructional Technology Consultant (ITC) for your academic unit.
