Dashboard Overview

Content

TurningPoint 5 has combined all its previously seperate features into one program and provides a dashboard to help navigate each feature.

 

Polling

There are three different polling options to select: PowerPoint, Anywhere, and Self-Paced. Click the links to the polling tutorials to learn more about each option of polling.

Before choosing a polling option, you can select a participant list and a question set so that these are automatically brought up when opening a particular polling option, rather than loading them once polling program is open.
