Where can students find information about clickers?

In order to streamline support and services, KSU has standardized on a response device system from Turning Technologies, LLC. If required by the instructor, a ResponseCard LCD, QT, or QT2 (aka clicker) will need to be purchased by the student to participate in the use of the response device system. A student must purchase a Turning Point Cloud license in order for their scores to be recorded by their instructor. This purchase of a license also includes access to ResponseWare, a web/mobile based application, through permission of use by the instructor.

In order to create a TurningPoint Cloud account and purchase a new clicker or a license for a used clicker you will need to follow the instructions.

Are all incoming freshman expected to purchase a clicker?  If so, which one?

Kent State University selected TurningTechnologies, LLC as the standardized vendor for its classroom response systems. As such, all 'clicker' software and hardware needs are provided by TurningTechnologies, LLC providing unified support and eliminating the need for students to purchase multiple systems. Students are only required to purchase a ResponseCard LCD, QT, or QT2 if the instructor requests.

Where can students purchase a 'clicker'?

Students can purchase a 'clicker' bundle, which includes a license, at:

  • Kent State University Bookstore
  • TurningTechnologies

 Students can purchase a ‘clicker’, which requires a separate license purchase, at:

  • Through an online vendor such as EBay or Amazon (as long as it's a TurningTechnologies, LLC brand ResponseCard RF, QT, or QT2)

How much does a 'clicker' cost?

  • The bookstore also has TurningPoint ResponseCard QT2 available for purchase. This includes a 4 year TurningPoint Cloud license. Please contact the bookstore for current pricing.
  • Clicker bundles may also be purchased once you have signed up for your TurningPoint Cloud account.
  • If you purchased a used clicker and purchased a 1 year license for it you may qualify for a rebate on the 1 year license.
