TurningPoint Clickers:


Returning Students (Purchased a Clicker & Subscription Fall 2016 and after)

If you purchased and registered a subscription and clicker in the Fall of 2016 or after, you will not need to register again through Moodle. You will only have to input a new subscription code when your subscription expires. You can check your account by going to student.turningtechnologies.com.

See GROK article 19602 for more information.


Obtain a Clicker

Clickers and/or Subscription can be obtained in one of the following ways:

  1. Purchase a Clicker and/or subscription directly from Turning Technologies*see note below*
  2. Borrow / Purchase a Clicker from a fellow student; who no longer needs a Clicker. A student will still need to purchase a subscription. *see note below*


NOTE: **If a student already owns a clicker, he/she will need to purchase a subscription only.**


Registering a Clicker/Subscription

2. Sign in to your own Turning Account (access through your own Moodle course).

3. Locate the Subscription section on your Turning profile. 

4. Do one of the following:

  • If you have already purchased a subscription code, click inside the subscription code box and enter the code in the Subscription Code field, and click Redeem

Account Verification

If you have completed the process of setting up an account through Moodle and have entered in a license code and keypad ID, then you will see three green checks on your account Dashboard.

The 3 green checks will verify that you have completed the steps correctly. If you are using the TurningPoint app and no other courses require the use of a clicker then you will ONLY have 2 green checks within your account.

 NOTE: If you are having issues with inputting a license code, please call the Turning Technologies Student Support line at 866.746.3015 from 7 am to 8 pm Monday - Sunday.
