A student response system used as a tool for active learning to enhance your in-person or virtual classroom.

Turning provides an easy way to actively engage your students in your lectures or conduct surveys and quizzes. Results can be displayed in real time to encourage discussion and can be automatically uploaded to your Blackboard Grade Center.
