ResponseWare is software that allows students to use their web-enabled devices such as smart phones and laptops to respond to TurningPoint interactive questions.

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).

ResponseWare requires an account set-up which is free for faculty to use, and a licensed set-up for students.

To set up a ResponseWare account for your class, contact the UBclicks Team at
