This is a tutorial put together by Anna Sklyarova, one of the students in TLT. This is to demonstrate getting an object into a virtual space where you could then share the object with your online cohort.
We offer this as a service to instructors, or you can do it yourself with these free tools as shown above.
You need to create an account if you are an instructor using clickers.
If you are a student buying a new clicker – the box should contain a code so that there is no charge to create an account.
If you are a student and have an existing registered clicker and are registered for the fall 2014 semester – you will be receiving a code via e-mail at your stonybrook.edu account. This code will get you a account and a year of responseware free. Do not pay for an account.
This Fall, Turning Technologies is changing their software to a cloud based registration system. This doesn’t change it’s functionality for it’s use in the classroom or class preparation, and the software is already available online here:
