Using Mobile Devices instead of Clickers

So easy now and just as easy to integrate into your Grade Center,

Students can connect via phone, tablet or computer.  You don’t even need the usb device just get a session id once Turning Cloud is launched.  To get there from a computer it is https://student.turningtechnologies.com/#/profile and they would click Sign In and enter their ECU credentials.
