Spftware VersionsSoftware and Hardware Versions – Are you in the know?

Often times the smallest things are overlooked when it comes to technology. Version numbers and firmware upgrades are not what we look for with regard to using technology in the classroom. Whether you are IT staff or faculty, it is important to be sure that all of your software is up-to-date.

  • Classroom Computer
  • Office Computer/Laptop
  • Home Computer

IT staff, you are encouraged to check the Turning Technologies website at least twice a year for any and all updates. Reviewing the release notes will help determine whether or not you need to update your software. On occasion, some upgrades are behind the scenes, aesthetic or features that are not used on your campus.

Faculty, make sure you check with your IT staff before each semester to ensure you have the same version of software as the campus. Running on the same software helps to eliminate compatibility issues and frustrations in the classroom.

Below you will find charts that outline the different receivers, software and ResponseCards that are available. When possible, it is always best to be using the most current receiver and software. As for ResponseCards, models on campus will vary based on your use in the classroom. By reviewing the chart below, you will be able to find the right clicker to meet your assessment needs.

… now you are in the know!
