UBclicks Software Update

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.
