Getting equipped

EPFL uses the Turning Technologies products.

What equipment do I need?

The system simultaneously manages students voting with either of two different types of devices:

  1. A hardware clicker (also called “clicker box”);
  2. A smartphone, or any other internet enabled device.

To create polls and to receive students votes on your computer, you need:

  • The TurningPoint software installed;
  • And:
    1. A hardware receiver to receive clicker votes;
    2. And/or an access to the EPFL shared licence to receive smartphone votes.
