TurningPoint AnyWhere

TurningPoint Anywhere (TP Anywhere) is a stand-alone cross-platform polling tool that is not tied to Microsoft Office PowerPoint. It uses a floating showbar that stays on top of any presentation tool and allows polling from your Keynote presentations, websites, PDFs, etc.

TP Anywhere uses standard RF clickers or smart devices if ResponseWare is activated.To inquire about ResponseWare and learn how you can engage your students via web-enabled devices, contact CELT at
