Classroom Response Systems

School of Medicine students uses a “clicker-less” response system from TurningTechnologies. Faculty often use this system during lectures and group discussions to encourage audience participation and to receive feedback. During Orientation, you will establish your account at the TurningTechnologies website here – http://account.turningtechnologies.com.

When faculty open a poll they should announce the Session ID being used so that students can respond to the poll using:

  • Using a browser at www.responseware.com
  • The ResponseWare application downloaded to their phone or tablet

Should you have device issues (dead battery, no wireless or WiFi, etc.), you can borrow a physical response device from Med Ed Technology staff in the Learning Studio or Auditorium.

Support questions for the TurningPoint system should be emailed to mededweb@virginia.edu.
