TurningPoint (TP) requires an internet connection for use. When you attempt to launch TP without an Internet connection, you will be prompted to enter your email address and the offline password to continue. If you are using a personal computer or device, it is recommended that you set up offline access for TurningPoint so that you can poll with clickers if you do not have internet access. You will need to have an internet connection in order to set up the offline password on your own laptop.
NOTE: If you are using a UMD classroom computer and have no internet connection, you will be prompted to enter an offline password after your initial login. Create and confirm the offline password using the steps listed above. If you wish to disable the message, simply select Do not show this message again and select Cancel. Offline passwords are linked to each computer and save only to the particular computer you are using. If you are using TP in multiple classrooms and wish to set an offline password for a particular computer, you will need to set an offline password for each computer you use.
