ResponseWare

Turning Technologies ResponseWare

ResponseWare is a way for students to use their smartphones to respond to Turning questions so they don’t have to purchase and remember a clicker. Currently, students may download a free app for Android or iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad). They are also able to use unsupported devices such as Windows phones/tablets or laptops through the web portion of Responseware at rwpoll.com.

Presenter responsibilities

As a presenter wishing to use ResponseWare (Turning Technologies web polling tool) you will need to visit https://account.turningtechnologies.com/account/. From that site you can create your Instructor Account that will allow connections from the classroom presentations to the TurningTechnology servers.

It’s imperative that faculty create an Instructor Account, and that students create a Participant Account.

To use ResponseWare in class with Turningpoint you would need to link your in-class activities to the online polling site. There is a place in the software you must log in to make that connection. After you login as a presenter, a session ID is generated.  This ID is provided to the students.  Students use a browser on their smart phone or laptop to go to www.rwpoll.com.  After entering the session ID provided by you, the student is joined to the in-class poll. If you would like, you are able to reserve a Session ID to use for the whole semester by navigating to rwpoll.com and clicking “Reserve or Change my Session ID.” You can then enter this reserved ID when you log in to ResponseWare. Students should be informed that if Wi-Fi is not available, use of their data plan will be required to respond.

Below are screenshots showing how to log into your ResponseWare accounts from within TurningPoint:
