TurningPoint 5 Upgrade Information
On Monday and Tuesday, June 10 - 11, 2013, classrooms supported by AV Services and the Blackboard integration with TurningPoint were updated to support TurningPoint 5.
What does this mean for faculty?
On June 10, in order to be able to download participant lists from Blackboard or upload grades, you must use TurningPoint 5. TurningPoint 2008 will no longer be supported.
TurningPoint 5 integrates a variety of TurningPoint applications into one easy to use environment. PowerPoint polling, AnyWhere polling, and ResultsManager can now share participant lists across polling methods and provides easier evaluation throughout the semester. TurningPoint 5 may be downloaded from the UK Download server. Please save a backup of your presentations before opening them in TurningPoint 5! Once a presentation has been opened in TurningPoint 5, it will be converted and will NO LONGER open in TurningPoint 2008.

What does this mean for students?
Students do not need to purchase a new clicker and re-registration of their device is not required. We do encourage students to verify that their clicker information is still accurate as you would at the start of any semester.
