Description

10:00AM to 10:45AM In this session, we will be demonstrating TurningPoint web, our web solution with clicker functionality. Developed with stability, ease of use, and time savings for instructors in mind; we will showcase the PowerPoint add-in and our scheduled polling feature, which provides instructors with the ability to schedule and facilitate surveys, assignments and more outside of the classroom while still continuing to get real time measurement of student understanding. This session is designed for new and existing users as we explore the new Web Platform and the Blackboard Sync integration. Additionally, we will demonstrate steps for downloading the web PowerPoint Add-in and creating an account, so instructors are encouraged to bring their personal laptops.

10:45AM-11:30AM TurningPoint has provided a direct integration with Blackboard for Indiana State University instructors in the past; however, with the newest sync integration, the process of manually downloading courses, updating rosters and uploading grades becomes an automated process. This session is designed for new and existing users as we explore the Blackboard sync integration and TurningPoint v8.5 pedagogical features. Whether you are interested in incorporating Gamification, Peer Instruction, or a Flipped Classroom in your course, we have you covered!
