TurningPoint for remote learning: Support for schools responding to the coronavirus

Turning Technologies is partnering with colleges and universities that are transitioning to remote learning in response to the coronavirus by offering a free enterprise TurningPoint license, or free pilots to individual instructors, for the remainder of the spring term.

What does an enterprise license provide?

An enterprise license gives every student and instructor on campus access to our online platform. While a school’s learning management system may be the default tool for asynchronous learning, here are some ways that TurningPoint web and mobile responding can support your needs in transitioning to a remote learning environment:

  • Engage students in real time
  • Schedule interactive homework assignments
  • Take attendance
  • Run reports and manage results from any location
  • Send results to your learning management system and/or export to an excel file

Will TurningPoint integrate with the school LMS?

If your school already has a TurningPoint integration, then all instructors and students will continue to integrate seamlessly with the LMS. TurningPoint web integrates with Blackboard, Brightspace and Canvas. A TurningPoint integration enables instructors to send results and attendance information to their LMS. Instructors at schools without an integration can export results into an excel file.

Need to set up an LMS integration?

If your school does not currently have an integration with TurningPoint, and you want to implement an enterprise licence, our support staff is available to work with schools to get one implemented quickly. This process usually takes less than an hour. We will need the email addresses for all organization administrators and all email domains that students may be using.

How do I get started?

We are here to help! If you are an IT administrator at your school, simply contact your account consultant or email us at sales@turningtechnologies.com to let us know that you are interested in a free enterprise license.

If you are an instructor who does not currently use TurningPoint, but are interested in getting started, contact us here to get set up with a free pilot for the rest of the spring term.

Will Turning Technologies provide any support in implementing an enterprise-wide adoption of TurningPoint on campus?

Our top priority is to make sure that getting started as seamless as possible. In service to that goal, we have prepared the following resources for IT administrators and faculty:
