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 Teaching & Learning Center 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
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:
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.
