Moodle 3.0, 3.2: Get Started Using TurningPoint Cloud
Applies to: Moodle 3.0, 3.2
TurningPoint Cloud is a response system used for polling students. This cloud-based version, replacing Turning Point 5 used with Moodle 2.8, has enhanced security for student responses.
With the new TurningPoint Cloud system, students must have an active license in order to receive credit for their responses. Students must access the registration system through a Turning Account Registration link in Moodle that you must add to your course site.
Adding the Turning Account Registration link to your Moodle course
Go to the course homepage.
Click Turn Editing On.
Click Add an activity or resource in the first topic, where the link should appear.
Click the Turning Account Registration radio button (under External Tools in Moodle 3.0) and Add. The settings are pre-set to work with your current course.
Enter the Activity name, eg Turning Point Registration (3.2).
Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save and return to course.
Place the link in a prominent location, near the top of the page, so it’s easy for students to find.
Important Note: If you are copying the contents of a course that contains a Turning Account Registration link, the copied link will not work. To restore functionality, delete the old link from the copied course and add a new Turning Account Registration link.
