Top Hat is replacing TurningPoint Cloud as Indiana University's integrated student response system in 2017. TurningPoint Cloud will continue to be available for spring and summer terms, but will no longer be supported in fall 2017. Instructors planning to use Top Hat for summer or fall 2017 should complete the Top Hat planning form to ensure wireless coverage and technology support is available.

For spring 2017, two types of student response systems are integrated with Canvas at Indiana University: Top Hat, and various options from Turning Technologies, LLC. For more about the Turning Technologies software, see ARCHIVED: About TurningPoint Cloud at IU (Retired). For details about Turning Technologies hardware, see below.

All Turning Technologies products can work in the same classroom. Instructors may allow all of them or may require (or disallow) a specific option. There are no registration fees. Students in different classes may share devices. Students with several classes requiring a Turning Technologies response device may be able to use the same device (refer to the table below).


The ResponseCard NXT is being replaced by the QT Device. NXT devices will continue to work, but any new orders for the NXT will be filled by the QT.
