TurningPoint Clickers - First Time Account Creation, Connecting With D2L and Registering a Device

This article shows how an individual can register their clicker if its needed in their class. It also demonstrates how to associate your account with D2L to ensure grades are transferred.

Before you begin

These instructions will guide you through the process of creating your account, and associating your account with D2L. Also on this page are instructions to associate a physical clicker to your account, and assign a license to your account.

You only need to register for an accounce once, but failing to do so may mean your responses will not be recorded as grades in D2L, which can affect your grade and prevent you from participating in-class.

You must have a license for grades to be saved to D2L.

Did you accidentally create a second account? Did you not use your UWM email address? Contact Turning Technologies support.

Create an account and link it with D2L

  1. Login to your D2L account, then click the name of your course in the My Courses list.
  2. Go to Content in your course. You should see a link similarly named "TurningPoint Cloud Integration" or something similar. Click that link.
    Is your course missing a link? You can create an account by visiting the Turning Technologies account website. Be aware that if your instructor grades participation, you should notify your instructor that you couldn't find a link.

    Instructors typically have a table of contents link, and course link named something similar to TurningPoint Cloud Integration. Click the link to proceed.
