Getting Started With ResponseWare

ResponseWare turns a student's web-enabled mobile device, tablet or computer into a virtual clicker. Participants are able to respond to polling questions through a Wi-Fi or data connection.

The UB wireless network may be insufficient to support all student ResponseWare connection attempts. UB recommends that students use clickers (ResponseCard models RF, XR or NXT).

Creating a Turning Account

A Turning Account is a unique identifier that is used to tie together all software accounts and response devices. A Turning Account is required for use with TurningPoint Cloud and ResponseWare.  See Turning Accounts for Students page for detailed information.
