How do I register my response device or redeem my TurningPoint account subscription?
The following steps will walk you through the process of registering a response device for class and/or redeeming a TurningPoint account subscription that you had purchased through the university bookstore.
Important: Students must register subscription codes and device IDs through Sakai per the instructions below.
1. Navigate to your Sakai course, and click TurningPoint.
NOTE: This step assumes that the instructor has added the TurningPoint tool to the course site in Sakai. Details for instructors about this are in the document, How do I add a tool to my course site to integrate with the TurningPoint App?
Navigate to a course in Sakai where clickers will be used, and click the TurningPoint tool in the tool menu.
If TurningPoint does not immediately launch in a new browser tab, click the Re-launch external tool link.
3. Initialize your TurningPoint account.
If you are a first-time user of TuningPoint, you will likely need to initialize your account. See How do I initialize my TurningPoint account?
4. Check your status in the TurningPoint profile.
When you have signed in and/or finished initializing your account, click the user icon and then Profile.
You will then see the TurningPoint Profile displayed.
If you have a check mark for Subscriptions, Response Device and Learning Management System, you are finished. The figure above depicts only one of these three items as complete.
If you have a yellow exclamation point to the left of Subscriptions or Response Device, follow the appropriate steps below. (If you have a yellow exclamation point to the left of Learning Management System, you need to sign in to TurningPoint through Sakai per step 1 above.)
Have a yellow exclamation point to the left of Subscriptions?
If you have a yellow exclamation point to the left of Subscriptions, it is because you have not yet applied a subscription to your account.
Under the Subscriptions heading click the blue "+" logo for Add/Purchase a Subscription.
If you have a Subscription Code, enter it in the text field and click Save. If you do not have a code, click Go Purchase a Subscription. Follow instructions to purchase a code online.
Click the ‘X’ at the top-left corner of this popup to exit.
Have a yellow exclamation point to the left of Response Devices?
If you have an yellow exclamation point to the left of Response Devices it is because you have not yet registered a device to your TurningPoint account.
Navigate to the Response Devices section and click the blue ‘+’ icon for Add or Purchase a Clicker.
Then enter the Clicker ID, located on the back of your clicker, and click Save. Click the ‘X’ at the top-left corner of this popup to exit.
NOTE: The Response Device ID is located on the back of the device below the barcode. Also, the device ID should consist of only letters A through F and numbers 0 through 9.
