Turning Account Instructions for Students

Some instructors us a Classroom Response System (CRS) from Turning Technologies in their courses. This enables you to submit answers to in-class questions using your mobile device and link scores from these sessions to D2L.

You may use your license for multiple courses. In order to complete the steps below, you should first 1) check with your instructor to ensure he or she uses THIS classroom response system (you DO NOT need to purchase a license if your instructor uses another CRS like Kahoot) and 2) purchase a semester license from the Phoenix Bookstore.
