UBIT SECURITY ALERT, 10/6/15: UB Administrator Phish 06-Oct-2015

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.

TurningPoint Cloud

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.
