Frequently Asked Questions
How do I turn on the Turning Technologies building block in my course?
How do students register the Turning Technologies ResponseCard?
I am not able to receive responses from all students.
All of your students' ResponseCards and the TurningPoint receiver need to be on the same channel in order for TurningPoint to receive responses. The default channel is 41.
I plug in my TurningPoint receiver, but nothing happens.
TurningPoint receivers must be plugged into a powered USB port. Try to use USB ports on the computer itself rather than those on peripheral devices, such as monitors, as they are more likely to be powered ports.
If I click an external link in my PowerPoint presentation and then return to my slides, polling no longer works.
If you click on an external link in your PowerPoint, it shuts down polling. If you are going to use TurningPoint, it's best not to include external links in your PowerPoint slides.
Can I see a list of devices within my Blackboard course?
No; access to a participant list is only accessible through the TurningPoint or TurningPoint AnyWhere software.
Where can I store participation data?
To secure student response data downloaded from a TurningPoint session, save all files to a personal or departmental Piratedrive folder or a secure encrypted USB flash drive. Visit the Data Encryption page for encryption software and flash drive recommendations. To further minimize the threat of release, delete downloaded files once you no longer need the information.
