Classroom response systems (clickers) have been shown to dramatically increase class interactivity and improve student engagement. As an additional benefit, the system enables both students and instructors to get real-time feedback on class effectiveness. Visit HSU's clicker support pages  for an overview, software downloads and other resources..
The Turning Point  system used at HSU comprises a receiver and handheld input devices. Receivers are installed in a number of HSU's smart classrooms  and are also available for checkout from Classroom Technology Services; the software is installed on all Smart Classroom systems. Clickers are distributed through the HSU Bookstore; faculty should order the appropriate number of clickers for their class at the same time as they order textbooks - a semester ahead of when they will be needed. Turning Point clickers are fully ADA-compliant.
If you wish to install the Turning Technologies software on your computer, it is available from the Faculty Download Center. 
The TurningPoint system may be integrated directly into Moodle  for fully interactive instruction.
Once the Turning Point software has been set up on your classroom computer and you've created your content, you can activate Turning Point with your Moodle sessions. Log in to Moodle as you would normally and go to the class in which you’ll be using Clickers. Turn on Editing. At the bottom of the right hand column, from the “Blocks” drop down menu select Turning Technologies; that item will appear on your page, above the Blocks drop down. You can drag it to wherever you want within the left or right column.
This should be done before your class is opened and available to the students. This will ensure that students will be prompted to register their clicker when they first log in. Until the device is registered, you will not be able to import the student's information.
Students should register for "All Classes" if given a choice. We are not using Responseware at this time.
When the faculty clicks on the "Administer" link in the Turning Technologies block, you'll see a full list of who has registered, as well as a menu at the top for importing sessions, exporting data, and purging device IDs. (Note: The Purge Device IDs command, found in the Turning operation will delete all of your students device ids from your class. You do not want to use this function.)
