Thinking of using polling software? Already using it but would like to find out about more features?

HWU has a licence for Point Solutions (previously Turning Point) and you can find out more by checking our Turning Point page on the IS Training Centre, check LibCal for upcoming training sessions or contact us at ishelp@hw.ac.uk

Polling via Turning Point has three main components:

  • a PowerPoint plugin
  • web-based polling
  • “Poll Anywhere”, a handy setup for anyone looking to run quick ad-hoc polls as you run screen demos or complete work on a digital whiteboard.

You can use Point Solutions to create polls, quizzes and surveys, deliver them in-class and students can respond in real-time. Results can be displayed instantly or saved for later analysis.

Information Services are also trialling Mentimeter – please contact the IS Helpdesk for more information.

Interested to see how polling can be used in your learning and teaching? Check out the LTA Padlet for further ideas/resources.
