Oncourse Turning Technologies tool: Overview
What it does
Turning Technologies has developed a tool for Oncourse that allows students to register their response devices (clickers) or licenses within a course site, and allows instructors to download a TurningPoint participant list of registered students, see students' registration status, and send email reminders to unregistered students.
Instructor's view: In the instructor's view, the tool lists students by Name, User ID, and Device ID. Click a column heading to sort the view.
Registering a student's device: Students should
generally register their own devices (see At IU, how do I buy and register a Turning Technologies device or license?); however, instructors can register a device for a
student or correct a device ID if necessary. Click a student's device
ID to edit an incorrectly entered number; click
entered to add a student's device ID. Instructors can only
register or modify a device ID for a student in that course, while the
student can choose to register the device for all his or her courses.

Things to consider
Import Session Filelink allows you to upload a TurningPoint session file to the Gradebook. Currently, UITS does not recommend this method of importing grades; see Using Turning Technologies and Oncourse, how can I manage student data?
Permissionslink allows you to manage access to the Turning Technologies tool by people with other roles; this feature is not yet fully developed.
