ResponseWare mobile clicker solution allows participants to use any web-enabled device to respond using a Wi-Fi or data connection. ResponseWare


ResponseWare turns mobile devices into a virtual clicker. Participants can respond to interactive questions with any web-enabled device including smartphones, tablets, laptops or desktops. ResponseWare allows participants to respond via the Internet through any web browser and immediately transfers selections to TurningPoint polling software. A variety of purchasing and licensing options are available to meet the needs of any polling environment. Android™ and Apple® apps are available for both phones and tablets. Engage and assess with familiar devices.

ResponseWare allows users to respond to multiple styles of questions using QWERTY keyboard input. Question types include multiple-choice, alphanumeric, multiple response and short answer questions. ResponseWare also displays the question and answer choices on the device during polling. It is compatible with TurningPoint software.

Latest version ResponseWare 2.0 offers significant enhancements to the mobile response application. ResponseWare 2.0 accounts are now tied to our new Turning Account system that offers one, central location to manage all response devices. One login will access both ResponseWare and Turning Accounts.

Minimum Mobile System Requirements
  • Wi-Fi or cellular connection (for optimum performance, a Wi-Fi connection is recommended).
  • Local area Wi-Fi or cellular network capable of supporting a concentration of one simultaneous connection for each ResponseWare device located in the same coverage area on the network.
    • (i.e. If a presenter wants to use 100 ResponseWare devices, their network needs to be able to support 100 simultaneous Wi-Fi connections within the area the devices are being used. The difference in a network that can support ResponseWare and a typical Wi-Fi network is that in typical use, all 100 devices are not in the same location or using the network at the exact same time.)
