Checking Your Turning Account Setup

If you've followed all the steps at the TurningPoint for Students page, and you'd like to check your set up, here's how! 

Log into your TurningPoint account. You can do this at account.turningtechnologies.com, or you can do this through eLC by clicking the TurningPoint account creation link in the TurningPoint news item in eLC.

If you see three green checks on your TurningPoint Profile screen, congratulations! Your account is completely set up. If you are missing any checks, and see yellow exclamation points instead, you may need to follow additional steps.

1. Have you purchased a TurningPoint subscription?

If you have purchased a TurningPoint subscription, you should see a green check next to Subscriptions. If you see a yellow exclamation point (like the image below), you can enter a subscription code (that you may have purchased from the Bookstore), or purchase a subscription online.

2. Is your clicker device id or ResponseWare id registered?

If your device id is registered, you will see a green check under Learning Management System on your Turning Point dashboard.​ If you see a yellow exclamation point, you may need to register your mobile device and/or clicker. You can also purchase a clicker online. NOTE: If you are only using Responseware, you don't need a clicker id registered in your account.

3. Did you connect your TurningPoint account to eLC?

If your TurningPoint account is connected to eLC, you will see a green check under Learning Management System in your TurningPoint profile.

If your TurningPoint account is NOT connected to eLC, you will see a yellow exclamation point next to Learning Management system. You need to log into eLC, and click the TurningPoint account creation link in the TurningPoint announcement in eLC, and log into your TurningPoint account via that link. You must complete this step in order to connect your device or ResponseWare license to eLC. 

4. Have you added your MyID?

Some faculty require you to add your MyID in the last step, called User ID. If you see a yellow exclamation point next to User ID, click the pencil to edit this field. Then type your MyID and click save.
