UBclicks is a classroom response system that allows students to participate in presentations or lectures by submitting responses to interactive questions via a keypad.

UB has selected Turning Technologies’ classroom response system as its campus-wide standard.

TurningPoint users will transition to Turning Technologies lastest software relase - TurningPoint Cloud for the Fall 2015 semester.

Check back here for additional details.

TurningPoint Cloud combines seamless polling with PowerPoint® (PowerPoint Polling), over top of any application (Anywhere Polling), and self paced tests, evaluations and surveys (SelfPaced Polling). Conduct realtime assessments to track progress (Results Manager) and instantly view results and collect valuable data all from one easy to use application.

TurningPoint Cloud provides cloud management of users and participant lists while effortlessly integrating with other organization adopted solutions to accelerate learner success. Currently, cloud management is computer specific, however development is rapidly expanding to build parity and syncing between the desktop and the cloud.

Both instructors and participants are required to have a Turning Account, which provides a unique identifier for each user that is tied to all software accounts and response devices. In addition to the Turning Account, participants are required to have a Turning Account license and may also be required to have a ResponseWare Presentation license.



A Turning Account license is mandatory for each student. If a student does not purchase a Turning Account license, his or her score will show as an asterisk in all TurningPoint Cloud participant reports.
Turning Account licenses are included when a clicker is purchased from the UB book store.
