PLEASE NOTE: TurningPoint, ECU's audience response vendor, is now rebranded as PointSolutions. 

Audience response devices, sometimes called clickers, are designed to actively engage students during the entire class period, gauge students’ level of understanding of presented material, and provide prompt feedback to the instructor, who can easily upload a grade to Canvas from polled responses (PointSolutions software required).


Polling Options

As an instructor, you can create instant polling questions from Web content, PDF’s, Microsoft Office products, whiteboards and more. In addition, you can create and save quizzes or create interactive presentations in a PowerPoint format.

Clicker & Receiver Options

Instructors may require that students purchase a physical clicker device or allow responses through the PointSolutions app. Mobile device polling comes at no additional out-of-pocket cost to students.

Responses from physical clickers are captured using a USB receiver, which has a ratio of 1 to 1,000, and an average receiving range of 200 ft. Receivers for larger classrooms are also available. Responses from mobile devices are transmitted over wireless.

Physical Clicker Request

To request the PointSolutions clicker device for your class, include ISBN: 978-0-9972248-0-1 in your textbook requisition. The receiver and a student clicker to be used for testing presentations are provided to the instructor at no charge.


Instructors can also enable the course participant list to pair students and their responses for grading purposes.
