Interactive Voting Sets - Turning Point
We have 8 interactive voting sets available for loan. These come in packs of 32 handsets in carry cases.
These voting sets are available for all staff to loan. Students wishing to borrow these items must ask a member of staff to book the item on your behalf. When borrowing any item of our loan stock you will be expected to take full responsibility for this item and return it in the same condition it was loaned to you in
What is it?
Add interactive questions into a PowerPoint presentation using the Turning Point Cloud desktop application (Windows and Mac).
IMPORTANT: TO USE THIS IN YOUR TEACHING YOU MUST HAVE AN ACCOUNT ISSUED BY IT SERVICES. YOU CANNOT JUST CREATE AN ACCOUNT ON RESPONSEWARE.EU, IT WILL NOT HAVE A LICENSE ASSIGNED TO IT. REQUEST ACCOUNTS VIA THE HELPDESK.
In your lecture, students respond using either:
- Their own laptops, smart phones or tablets (by connecting to your session at http://responseware.eu ).
- Response keypads (known as clickers) borrowed from Audio Visual Services (some departments may also have their own sets).
In most cases we recommend option 1. Warwick students can be relied upon to have devices connected to wifi, as well as the skills needed to connect to your session. Clickers should be used with participants who are unlikely to have access to the University wifi network. In both cases you will need a ResponseWare account issued by IT Services to be able to teach with it. Students do not need accounts.
