How do I initialize my TurningPoint account?
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.
2. Sign-in with PLU your credentials.
3. Create account.
Click the checkbox to agree to the license agreement, then click Finish.
You should then be presented with a welcome message as depicted below. Then, click Let’s get started!
If you have a Subscription Code, enter it into the text field. If you don't have a code at this time, you can purchase one later. Click Next.
If you have a clicker, enter the Clicker ID into the text field. The Clicker ID is located on the sticker on the back of your clicker. If you don't have a Clicker ID at this time, you can add it later. Click Next.
The green check mark confirms your account is connected to Sakai. Click Next.
You will then be presented with a “Finished” screen. Click Finish.
An email will be sent to your PLU email account confirming your new account.
3. Check your status in the TurningPoint dashboard.
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.
Students who have a yellow exclamation point for Subscriptions and/or a yellow exclamation point for Response Devices in their TurningPoint Profile instead of check marks should proceed to instructions in the help document, How do I register my response device or redeem my TurningPoint account subscription? (If a student has a yellow exclamation point to the left Learning Management System, the student needs to sign in through TurningPoint in Sakai per step 1 above.)
NOTE: Instructors might not need to enter subscription codes or device IDs for TurningPoint.
