<ul><li><p>TurningPoint 8 </p><p>Creating a Turning Account </p><p>1. In order to use TurningPoint 8, you must first create a Turning Account. You can create your Turning Account at </p><p>https://instructor.turningtechnologies.com. </p><p>2. Use your uab.edu e-mail address and click Create Account. </p><p>3. UAB uses a Single-Sign on service to access your Turning Account. Log in using your BlazerID.

Log into your Turning Account at https://instructor.turningtechnologies.com. </p><p>2. Click the Downloads link from the menu. </p><p>3. Underneath the TurningPount 8 tab, click PC Install or Mac to install the software. This is where you will also </p><p>find the PC User Guide and Mac User Guide.

When you launch TurningPoint, you will have to log in with your BlazerID before using the program. Click </p><p>Sign In. </p><p>2. After logging in, you will now see the TurningPoint dashboard. To finish setting up your TurningPoint software, </p><p>click on the Preferences icon on the bottom right. </p></li><li><p>4. You can set TurningPoint 8 to automatically check for updates. This will save you from having to go to Turning </p><p>Technologies to download software when updates become available. By checking the Automatically Check for </p><p>Updates box, you will receive a message when you first launch TurningPoint whenever a new version is </p><p>available. </p><p>You may also want to have TurningPoint automatically open when PowerPoint launches. By checking the Add-</p><p>in Always Loaded box, TurningPoint will automatically launch when you open PowerPoint. However, you will </p><p>have to log in every time you launch TurningPoint. </p><p>Click Close to save your settings. </p></li><li><p>Opening an Existing PowerPoint Presentation in TurningPoint </p><p>1. To open an existing PowerPoint presentation in TurningPoint, first open the Turning Point program and log in </p><p>with your BlazerID. This will launch the TurningPoint Dashboard. (Remember, if you open PowerPoint instead </p><p>of TurningPoint, you wont have the necessary toolbar to create an ARS question, unless you have previously </p><p>changed your settings to always load the add-in.) </p><p>2. In the Dashboard, click on PowerPoint Polling to launch PowerPoint. </p></li><li><p>3. Once PowerPoint is open, select File. A drop-down-menu will appear. In this drop-down-menu, select Open. </p><p>4. Find the existing PowerPoint presentation and click Open. </p></li><li><p>Creating a New Question Slide for Use with ARS </p><p>1. Select the TurningPoint tab. </p><p>2. Click on New. A drop-down-menu will appear and you can select which type of question you want to ask. </p><p>(For example, Multiple Choice or True/False.) </p></li><li><p>3. Type your question in the top text box. Type your possible answers in the bottom text box. You can include up </p><p>to 10 possible answers, although more than 5 is often hard to read in the lecture room. </p><p>4. You can set the question options with the Slide Preferences Pane on the right. In the Slide Preferences Page, you </p><p>can format the bullets, determine whether or not the question will allow multiple responses, and whether to show </p><p>the responses during or after polling. </p></li><li><p>5. If you want the TurningPoint software to track whether students answered the questions correctly or incorrectly, </p><p>select which answers are correct in the column on the right. </p><p>6. Once you select a correct answer, TurningPoint will automatically change the other options to incorrect. The </p><p>correct answer will be shaded green; the incorrect answers will be shaded red. </p></li><li><p>Adding Objects to a TurningPoint Slide </p><p>1. You may want to add an optional countdown timer or correct answer indicator to your TurningPoint slide. You </p><p>can do this under the Objects tab in the TurningPoint toolbar. (NOTE: Be sure to add objects to the slide in the </p><p>order that they should appear when polling.) </p><p>2. To add a countdown timer, select Objects in the TurningPoint toolbar, then select Countdown from the drop-</p><p>down-menu, and then choose the option you want. </p></li><li><p>3. You can adjust the amount of time the timer counts down by selecting the timer icon at the bottom right of the </p><p>screen, and changing the time in the Slide Preferences Pane. </p><p>4. To add a correct answer indicator, select Options in the TurningPoint toolbar, then select Correct Answer </p><p>Indicator from the drop-down-menu, and then choose the option you want. </p></li><li><p>5. If your chart gets deleted, you can add a new chart by clicking on Objects in the TurningPoint toolboar, then </p><p>selecting Charts from the drop-down-menu, and then choosing the option you want. </p><p>UME is committed to providing up-to-date and accurate information. If you have any feedback, please contact </p><p>Kenneth Hurd at ken84@uab.edu or 205-934-2246. </p>mailto:ken84@uab.edu</li></ul>
