Turning Point is the electronic voting software that can be used to create anonymous polls. If you are thinking of preparing some slides on your office PC for live polling to use in a lecture, please make sure that you have installed TurningPoint Cloud (TP) from the self-service catalogue. Turing Point will not be readily accessible (in your office) unless you do so. Instructions on how to install the software can be found on the IMT website.
Once you install the software from the software centre, it will look no different and all of its functionalities will stay the same.
What about the Classrooms?
You will not have to do anything differently to use TurningPoint on a classroom PC. The software is automatically installed on all machines – simply search for TurningPoint in the search programmes bar in the bottom left hand corner.
You cannot use TurningPoint without an account.
If you do not have a TurningPoint account and you would like to use the voting software then just email LTI.Support@lse.ac.uk and we will set up an account for you.
