POSTED: AUGUST 7, 2013
The TurningPoint clicker software was updated on classroom computers supported by Audio/Visual Services in June 2013. The new version, TurningPoint 5, is available for UK instructors to download from download.uky.edu.
It is extremely important that instructors update their office computers as the old version will no longer communicate with Blackboard and the classroom clickers will not work properly.
Instructors may also experience issues with TurningPoint-enabled presentations if their office computer is not updated. Presentations opened on updated classroom computers will be automatically updated to the new version of TurningPoint. These presentations will work for class, but will no longer open on computers that are still running the older version of the software.
Students will not need to reregister or purchase new clickers, but they should check their registration to makes sure it's correct.
In-person TurningPoint 5 tutorials for instructors and support staff will be offered on Monday, August 19 and Tuesday, August 20. Pre-registration is encouraged, but walk-ins are welcome. Additional TurningPoint information, including links to web-based tutorials, is available at http://www.uky.edu/acadtrain/turningpoint.
