Student Response Systems - Classroom Clickers for Students

Clicker Information for Students

Please note: in Canvas left navigation, you will see the term TurningPoint, and when you click the link, it will bring you to the page with term PointSolutions, Echo360. PointSolutions by Echo360 was formerly known as TurningPoint by Turning Technologies. You will still see some references to TurningPoint and Turning Technologies in the documentations. But the product and how it works stay the same way for now.

Instructors may require a clicker device, a mobile device or allow either option as a response device in their class. Refer to your syllabus or wait for the first day of class for directions from your instructor. 

Students are required to purchase a Turning Account license to participate in TurningPoint (now called PointSolutions) sessions. An account license must be purchased if the student is using a mobile device or a clicker. 1-year and 4-year stand-alone licenses and clicker/license packages are available at the UMD Bookstore. At this time, you cannot purchase a Turning Account online. 

Used clickers can be used with TurningPoint (or PointSolutions).
