Requiring Clickers

Instructors that would like to make TurningPoint Clickers a required course material for their courses must click "Assign TurningPoint Clickers" in the "Books/Supplies Main Menu" in Banner. This will inform students that TurningPoint clickers are required for the course and will need to be purchased at the WCC Bookstore or elsewhere. A TurningPoint receiver will be provided to faculty from the Media Services Department on a semester loan basis.

How do students get their Clickers?

Students purchase their own clickers from the WCC Bookstore or elsewhere. This clicker is tied to their BlackBoard ID and can be used in any course where TurningPoint is required.

Students are required to register their clickers in BlackBoard. It is advisable that Instructors remind their students to complete this step prior to the first day of class.
