Beginning at 10:00 a.m. 1/16/09, all students, who attempted to register their clicker device ID numbers in WebCT, were unable to complete the registration process.
A MANDATORY fix is now available for the clicker registration pages in WebCT courses, including a new version of TurningPoint for PC, which enables more efficient downloads of Participant Lists and offers advanced functionality.
The following steps MUST BE COMPLETED by instructor/designers of ALL WebCT courses that use clickers:
- In the Build tab, Course designers must delete the existing clicker registration page from their WebCT courses. Course designers must then add a new clicker registration link to their WebCT course. They can do so by using the Add Content Link option and selecting TurningPoint Keypad Register (be sure to select . . . TurningPoint Keypad Register, NOT . . . Entry).
- Instructors must inform students that ALL STUDENTS must re-register their clicker device ID numbers by accessing the newly created clicker registration links in WebCT. If a student is enrolled in more than one course that uses clickers, only one registration in one WebCT course is required. A global entry will be automatically created for all courses in which this student is enrolled.
- Instructors must uninstall their previous version of TurningPoint software, and install a new version of TurningPoint for PC on their computers in order to download new participant lists with increased speed and added functionality.
NOTE: Instructors, who ran a clicker polling session using the "Auto" mode after 10:00 a.m. January 16, 2009 and prior to completion of the above steps, and want to reconcile the polling results against newly created participant lists, please contact email@example.com. Step-by-step reconciliation instructions will be provided.
