If you have not an account to login with, you can create offline content. By clicking this button you will see the image below</p> <p>5. If you login, the only difference is the addition of the options below.</p> <p>6. Select PowerPoint Polling. PowerPoint Polling allows you to create content for the handsets and receivers. These can be booked via prs@qub.ac.uk.</p> <p>7. If using Office 2013 you may select Blank Presentation or open a previous presentation. Note that TurningPoint. </p> <p>Creating an Interactive Slide</p> <p>When TurningPoint is opened, a non-interactive PowerPoint slide is displayed. To begin, add a title and put your name as the subtitle for the presentation.</p> <p>All functionality of TurningPoint is accessed through the TurningPoint tab, located on the main PowerPoint ribbon menu bar. See the image below in which TURNING POINT has been selected.</p> <p>1. Click on the TurningPoint tab and then NEW option to access the drop down menu. See below for the icon.</p> <p>2. Select the Multiple Choice slide type from the various question types. </p> <p>3. Click in the Enter Question Text section. Type your Question text. </p> <p>This is your chance to enter some questions around your subject area.</p> <p> In this example you can see I chose the question What is the closest planet to the sun?</p> <p>4. Click in the Enter Answer Text section. This will allow you to type an answer. Type the first answer beside Number 1 (or the letter A, depending on the configuration). </p> <p>5. See below in this example, I wrote the answer Mercury.</p> <p>6. Press the Return key on your keyboard, type the second possible answer beside number 2 (or the letter B). Repeat this step until you have entered all the possible answers for your question.</p> <p>7. Repeat steps 2 to 6 another three times (thereby creating more slides with different questions as you choose the New button ).</p> <p>8. You will then now have four interactive slides. </p> <p>1. </p> <p>Adding Additional Interactive Slide Objects</p> <p>These elements can add some useful functionality to your presentation.Return to your first interactive slide. On the left side of the PowerPoint screen.</p> <p>Click on the Objects option on the TurningPoint tab to access the drop down menu. </p> <p>Select Prompt Bevel. This will insert an Answer Now icon at the bottom of the slide. A prompt provides participants with a visual cue that the slide is a polling slide to which they can respond. A prompt can be made to appear on each polling slide that is created.</p> <p>This will produce the bevel with the text Answer Now, you could however change this to be Display Results or alternative text.</p> <p>Locate your second interactive slide.Click on the Objects option on the TurningPoint tab to access the drop down menu. Select Countdown Square. This will insert a Square timer at the bottom right corner of the slide. The default time will be 30 seconds, but you can adjust this as you will see.</p> <p>Countdown timers add a sense of urgency to the poll.</p> <p>A Countdown timer provides participants with a visual cue that polling is about to close as it counts down to zero. When the countdown expires, the countdown timer disappears and polling is automatically closed. A countdown timer can be made to appear on each polling slide that is created.</p> <p>Click on the 30 in the center of the Square timer. </p> <p>Type 20 into the Countdown Seconds field of the Slide Preferences options box, thus changing the countdown time to 20 seconds.</p> <p>Locate your third interactive slide.</p> <p>Click on the Objects option on the TurningPoint tab to access the drop down menu. Select Response Counter. This will insert a Response Counter in the bottom left corner of the slide. </p> <p>This Response Counter will display on screen the amount of received responses.</p> <p>During the Slide Show, the response counter displays the number of responses. For example, if there are 32 participants in the participant list, the response counter displays 0 of 32. It continues to count as the responses are received and closes polling when the 32nd response is received.</p> <p>Locate your fourth interactive slide.</p> <p>Click on the Object option on the TurningPoint tab to access the drop down menu. Select Grid Table. This will insert a table onto the slide. </p> <p>There are 3 types of grid available.</p> <p>This table will highlight when individual handsets have responded with the colour of the number box changing upon that particular handset registering its response.</p> <p>Creating a Picture Slide</p> <p>Instead of using textual answers in the answer region, you can use images.</p> <p>Note: As you will be using images as answers you must use them with vertical, pie or doughnut slide options as the horizontal or the offset charts will not align properly.</p> <p>1. Click on the New option on the TurningPoint tab to access the drop down menu.</p> <p>2. Select the Multiple Choice from the drop down menu.</p> <p>3. Click in the Enter Question Text section. Type :</p> <p>Which of the following would you associate with Gustave Eiffel?</p> <p>4. Click in the Enter Answer Text section. Type one beside number the letter A (or number displayed number 1 if that is your configuration).</p> <p>5. Press the Return key, type two beside number 2.</p> <p>6. Press the Return key, type three beside number 3. </p> <p>7. Press the Return key, type four beside number 4.</p> <p>8. From the PowerPoint menu select Insert tab Pictures. </p> <p>9. Browse to the location of the images you wish to include.</p> <p>10. From the Insert Picture dialogue, I am browsing to the Desktop in the image above where I have a folder containing the images. Open the TurningPoint folder.</p> <p>11. Click on the first picture (Egypt), press and hold the Control key on your keyboard and click on the other three (England, France, Russia).</p> <p>12. Click on insert.</p> <p>13. Resize and position the images the way you want them to appear on the slide, by using the grab handles at the corners and sides of each image that appear once you select or highlight them.</p> <p>14. Ensure no objects or images on the slide are selected by clicking outside the slide, or on an unoccupied area of the slide.</p> <p>15. Select the image that corresponds to the first answer that will be represented by users selecting 1 or A on their keypad by clicking on it to select the image (for example choose Russia). </p> <p>16. Select the image that corresponds to the second answer by holding the Control key and clicking it. </p> <p>17. Repeat step 16 for the additional two images in the order you wish to relate to the choices.</p> <p>18. Click on the TurningPoint Ribbon and Then Tools convert to picture slide icon.
