TurningPoint for Faculty
TurningPoint is a student engagement system that allows instructors to ask questions, take polls, give quizzes, and get feedback from students during class. TurningPoint has a clicker device and a bring-your-own-device system, which means that students can use any web-enabled device (laptops, tablets, smartphones) to respond to polls. Please note that some instructors do not allow students to use ResponseWare, requiring them to purchase a clicker. Students must create a Turning Account and purchase a clicker and/or Turning ResponseWare License to participate. The steps are available on our TurningPoint Student Support page.

We encourage faculty using Turning Technologies to include a statement regarding academic honesty in their syllabi. Dr. Edward Panetta from Communication Studies shared his statement:
As a University of Georgia student, you have agreed to abide by the University's academic honesty policy, "A Culture of Honesty," and the Student Honor Code. All academic work must meet the standards described in "A Culture of Honesty" found at http://www.uga.edu/honesty. I consider sharing the daily clicker attendance responses or other clicker details with a student who is not in the classroom to be a violation of the honor code. Lack of knowledge of the academic honesty policy is not a reasonable explanation for any violation of the honor code. Any questions related to course assignments and the academic honesty policy should be directed to the instructor.
