TurningPoint is an audience response system used in connection with PowerPoint to allow polling during classes.
- Do I need a ResponseCard student clicker or a ResponseWare license?
Your instructor will inform you of the specific requirements. At this time, all non RN pre-specialty students are required to use a clicker device (you may not use the ResponseWare license). Here, at the School of Nursing, we use only RF, RF-A (Braille characters), RF LCD, NXT and XR ResponseCard student clickers (an IR ResponseCard clicker will not work).
- ResponseCard student clicker
The ResponseCard student clicker is a device used to respond and participate in classes using PowerPoint polling. Supported devices: RF, RF-A (Braille characters), RF LCD, NXT and XR ResponseCard student clickers (an IR ResponseCard clicker will not work)
