Response Devices

Turning Technologies provide two response device options to participate and respond to polling questions, a keypad or web-enable smart device.

Instructors determine and notify students the response device option(s) that best suites the class.

Clickers and Mobile can work independently or together in a single session.


Clickers are hardware devices that allow students to participate in presentations or lectures by submitting responses to questions via a keypad. Students must purchase and register a new or used Turning Technologies QT or NXT device. The UB bookstore sells new QT devices or students can purchase/borrow from classmates or internet vendors.


TurningPoint Mobile turns a student's web-enabled device into a virtual clicker. Students are able to respond to polling questions using a Wi-Fi or data connection. Students purchase a Mobile license from Turning Technologies and download a device specific app or use a web browser and specific URL.
