For asynchronous web-based polling, it is recommended that instructors log in by selecting Clickers from an ELMS-Canvas course menu or go to instructor.turningtechnologies.com. This portal allows instructors to create content and schedule polling with outcomes that can be uploaded to their ELMS-Canvas course gradebook.
TurningPoint web-based scheduled polling is not available for live classroom polling at the University of Maryland. If you are already familiar with the desktop version, be aware that you cannot use your desktop Manage tab for polls created with these instructions.
Once your content is scheduled you can share it with your participants by clicking the Share button. This will give you the option to copy a link that, when followed, will allow students to participate in your scheduled session.
You can share this link with students either by email or using Announcements in your ELMS-Canvas course. Be sure to communicate the schedule (start and finish dates and times) that you created for this poll.
Grades will not be ready to upload until your scheduled session has ended. Each time you upload grades to your ELMS-Canvas course, a new column will be created using the date and time of the upload as a title.
Additional help is available for scheduling a poll in TurningPoint Web by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting Turning Technologies Support at 866.746.3015.
