UTHSC will be migrating to a new audience response system over the next academic year, replacing TurningPoint with Poll Everywhere. One of the primary advantages to Poll Everywhere is that students will no longer have to pay a license fee to participate in their instructor’s polls.
Information about Poll Everywhere and the transition, including training schedules, can be found at:
A few items of note as we begin this transition:
- TurningPoint will continue to be available and fully supported until the end of June 2021.
- If you would like an account to create polls, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- TLC staff will migrate your TurningPoint slides to Poll Everywhere. The link above will provide instruction for beginning the process.
- Single Sign On will be enacted in the near future, making it easier to access Poll Everywhere for you and your students. In the meantime, if you are going to require students to login in order to respond to your polls, it is very important that they login with their @tennessee.edu email address. Instructions for loading your students into your account can be found at the above link.
Send email to email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.
