YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (June 1, 2017) – Turning Technologies, the global leader in learning engagement and assessment solutions, today announced the launch of the latest version of TurningPoint. The interactive polling software – which allows instructors to seamlessly poll with PowerPoint, on-the-fly, on the web or in self-paced mode – introduces an improved look and superior features and functionality designed to streamline everyday interactions.
When describing the design process, Ethan Cohen, CEO of Turning, explained, “We conducted extensive interviews and surveys from our users, and we are very excited to release a product built from the ground up with client feedback. The latest version of TurningPoint is faster, easier to use and more resilient than any of its predecessors. Additionally, we have streamlined and automated much of the registration process for students.”
Instructors in higher education, K-12 schools and corporate environments will see an enhanced user interface and enjoy quicker presentation load times, content conversion ability and improved accessibility features. The new TurningPoint likewise benefits students with a streamlined registration process and a new app interface that makes managing their accounts and using response technology easier than ever.
In addition, optional upgrades to integrations with Blackboard, Canvas and Brightspace simplify instructors’ interactions with their learning management systems by automating key processes. For example, class rosters will update automatically on a daily basis. The new integrations also make it easier to send grades to the LMS, even for students that submit results before registering, and give instructors the ability to directly email students to ensure proper completion of the registration process.
TurningPoint offers maximum flexibility by enabling learners to respond with web-enabled mobile devices, traditional clickers or both. The interactive polling software provides the tools instructors need to engage learners, gather meaningful data and support active learning approaches shown to improve learning outcomes.
