Audience Response System

Faculty Resources

As an instructor, you can create instant polling questions from Web content, PDF's, Microsoft Office products, whiteboards and more. In addition, you can create and save quizzes or create interactive presentations in a PowerPoint format. Grades from polled responses can also be downloaded into the Blackboard Grade Center.

Audience responses are collected through the radio receiver which has a clicker-to-receiver ratio of 1 to 1,000, and an average receiving range of 200 ft. Receivers for larger classrooms are also available.

To request the Turning Technologies ResponseCard NXT for your class, include ISBN Number: 978-1-934931-45-5 in your textbook requisition. The receiver and a student clicker to be used for testing presentations are provided to the instructor at no charge.

Turning Technologies has an array of resources and videos to help instructors decide which features fit their particular need. Visit the Product Training page to access online tutorials, training documents, Webinar archives and more.

All Turning Technologies software is free and available for download at the Turning Technologies website and integrates with Blackboard, allowing grades to be directly imported into the grade center.

Student Resources

Instructors enable the Turning Technologies Building Block feature in Blackboard which allows students to register their device. Instructors can also enable the course participant list to pair students and their responses for grading purposes.

Although the Turning Technologies ResponseCard NXT is the recommended audience response system at ECU, it is important to check with your instructor to determine which model will be used for a class.
