TurningPoint Integration with eLC

TurningPoint integrates with eLC. Once you've connected, you can import a participant list of students from eLC into your TurningPoint software, and then export a session back to eLC. NOTE: For these processes to work, students must register using the TurningPoint link in the news item in eLC (instructions for students on how to do this).

IMPORTANT: It is recommended that you run your TurningPoint sessions on auto, save your session, and then drag your session to an updated participant list. See below for instructions to run a TurningPoint session on auto.

Running a TurningPoint session in Auto

 TurningPoint Cloud can be used with your class roster from eLC, referred to in the software as a Participant List, to track student results. If instructors are making updates to Participant Lists from different workstations (running sessions in class and then updating the Participant List later in an office), it is recommended that the mode Auto is used for the Participant List when running a session in class. 

Auto is a participant list option that allows the polling of responses, tracking these responses via a Device ID and any user information sent from the response device. A Device ID is a Turning Technologies identifier that allows us to track responses (but it is not the LMS ID). 

From the TurningPoint Cloud Dashboard, Auto can be selected in the Participants Panel for all three polling modes: 

Anywhere Polling : Auto can be selected from the Settings icon via the Participant List drop-down.

PowerPoint Polling : Auto can be selected from the Participants section of the TurningPoint Cloud Ribbon.

Self-Paced Polling : Auto must be selected in the Participants Panel from the Dashboard.

 

Once you've run a session on auto and saved it, you'll need to pair it to an updated participant list.
