Georgia Tech is upgrading its audience response system (clicker system) to the latest version, TurningPoint 8, for the Fall 2017 semester. In addition, Georgia Tech is also announcing the purchase of an enterprise license for TurningPoint, which will allow students to use the system for free.

How does this impact my students?

  1. Students can use the TurningPoint mobile app at no cost if you allow mobile devices in your classroom.
