TurningPoint September Security Update - Authentication Needed

Notice: If you are looking for resources on HyFlex teaching, please visit our Teach HyFlex Page

The TurningPoint integration was upgraded on Friday, August 29th for security purposes. There will be a one-time authentication and you will be good to go! All of the functionality and workflows will still be the same.

Log in to your TurningPoint account through NDSU Blackboard


  1. Log in to Blackboard, go to your course, click on “Tools” in the left pane, and follow the “TurningPoint Registration” link in order to connect your accounts.
  2. Select the “NDUS Blackboard” tab and authenticate your connection

    1. NOTE – once the connection is authenticated, any course that you are marked as instructor in Blackboard, will show up in TurningPoint, even if the course is marked as unavailable in Blackboard. Also, you will be able to continue using the integration with any courses that you previously synced.

  1. Once you authenticate your connection, if you have new courses to sync you can use the search box in the upper right-hand corner. This will search by both course name and course ID. Click “Add” and this will sync the course and move it to the “Active Courses” tab.
