In order to fully utilize TurningPoint software, a Turning Technologies account will need created and subscription is required. Government, Military and Rental customers, please contact your representative for proper downloads.
IMPORTANT: Please note that TurningPoint v8.0 or later is NOT backwards compatible. For example, if an instructor has v8.0 on their desktop and goes into a lecture hall with a podium computer that has v7.5, it will not work. Anything created in v8.0 cannot be used in older versions. However, anything created in older versions of TurningPoint can be brought into TurningPoint v8.0 and slides will work successfully.
It is recommended that users not uninstall older versions of TurningPoint until after installing TurningPoint v8.0 or later. Upon opening the software for the first time, users will then be prompted to copy their content files, participant lists and session files from the older version to the new one. If a user has already downloaded TurningPoint v8.0 or later, the update process will proceed as it normally does via the software update footer.
With TurningPoint student apps, learners can respond to interactive TurningPoint questions with any web-enabled device including smartphones, tablets, laptops or desktops.
