Clickers: Creating an Echo360 PointSolutions (formerly TurningPoint) Account (Students)


Echo360 bought out Turning Technologies and has made changes to account creation. If your instructor tells you to use a module through Canvas to create your account, you can do so. If you have any questions or problems in creating the account, please contact the OIT HelpDesk.
