TurningPoint Polling - Student Resources

Students need to use TurningPoint Polling only if it is required by the instructor in the course. This information will be available in the course syllabus or it will be conveyed to you by your instructor in class. If the software will be used in your course, all instructions will be provided by your instructor.

Turning License

If the instructor uses TurningPoint Polling, students must purchase a Turning License. The license is available at the UTD Bookstore. This is a very important step because without a Turning License you will not be able to participate in the polling.

Hardware / software

There are 3 options to participate in polling. All three require you to have a Turning License. Your instructor will inform you which of these 3 options are allowed in class.
