Turning Technologies

Turning Technologies also known as our clicker system will be integrated with Blackboard Learn.  You will be able to import participant's lists into PowerPoint and then export all of the data collected into the Blackboard Learn Grade Center.
Faculty wishing their students to use clickers should order them just as they order textbooks. Students can purchase them in the University Shop. A limited number of clicker loaner kits are available for faculty to try for a class or two by contacting cit@villanova.edu.

All of the functionality of Respondus that was available in Blackboard Vista will be available in Blackboard Learn.  In addition, when using the LDB you can create required passwords to enter the test as an additional level of security as well as a password for letting the student quit the LDB before finishing the test in case of an emergency.
