Using student lists from DIT’s with Turningpoint clickers

After yesterdays clickers workshop I have been trying out a few new tools.

First on my list was to try importing a student list from our virtual learning environment The tutorial on how to do this is available at

This integration worked out really well and I could import a full student list from WebCourses into my Participant list in my Turningpoint/PowerPoint slides. Then Ken Lacey and I tested out some quiz questions , saved the responses and exported the data back to This data was then available in the GradeBook. This tool can definitely be encouraged as another means to record results for summative assessment or continuous assessments.
