About TurningPoint Cloud
You will need to get a new USB receiver to take advantage of the changes that will come with TurningPoint Cloud. Below are a few things you need to do before the fall term.
- Trade in your old TurningPoint USB receiver for a new USB receiver. Bring your old TurningPoint USB receiver to Online Learning Services in the Center for Science and Technology, room 1-245, and trade it in for a new one. The new receiver will have the TurningPoint Cloud software loaded on it.
- Create a Turning Account. All instructors must do this.
- If your students will be using clickers, contact the SU Bookstore as soon as possible. Please email the University Bookstore Textbook Department at email@example.com or call Kathleen Bradley at 315-443-9901 with the approximate number of students in your class(es) to ensure adequate clicker inventory.
- Sign up for a workshop. Attend any one of our training or walk-in sessions to get ready to use TurningPoint Cloud in the fall.
