NEWS for Summer 2015:

There are a few simple, but important changes for the Summer 2015 semester, effective 5/15/15.

      1. URI has moved from TurningPoint 5 to TurningPoint Cloud effective Summer Session I.

      2. Both Instructors and Students create their secure account at https://account.turningtechnologies.com/account/.


  • Only TurningPoint Cloud is integrated with Sakai. 
  • Faculty – Remember to uninstall TurningPoint 5 on your laptops when you download TurningPoint Cloud (to avoid confusion).
  • Faculty – You need to add both the Turning Technologies and TurningPoint Cloud tools for it to work with the Sakai version we have (once we move to Sakai 10 it will only need the TurningPoint Cloud).
    Once you have added both tools, go to Site Info (left), Page Order (top). Click on the box for the Turning Technologies tool. Then click on the light bulb so it turns blue instead of yellow. It will tell you that tool will be hidden from others. It will look italicized to you. That way no one can pick the wrong tool.

      UPDATE: Students will be able to register their devices and licenses in Sakai starting Tuesday morning after the 7 am Sakai restart on 5/19/15. Any question data in the meantime will be passed to Sakai after students have completed the registration process.
