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.
The Office of Educational Innovation & Assessment has clickers that you can borrow for special events or one time usage. Requests for clickers should be made in increments of 50, up to a maximum of 200.
To submit a request, download the Clicker Equipment Release Form, fill it out and email it to UBclicks@buffalo.edu.
Beginning May 20, 2013, TurningPoint 5 will be the only version able to connect with Blackboard on UBlearns and the only version available in Clicker-Ready classrooms.
Faculty who are using clickers in classrooms must use TurningPoint 5 to create their presentations. TurningPoint 5 can be downloaded for free from the Turning Technologies' website for use on personal computers.
The documentation may state to type in a Server Address. In all cases, the Server Address is: https://ublearns.buffalo.edu
Presentations created in TurningPoint 2008 will work in TurningPoint 5 but once a presentation has been saved in TurningPoint 5 it cannot be opened in TurningPoint 2008.
Turning Technologies has also created tutorials
and guides for TurningPoint 5.
