TurningPoint has been decommissioned and no longer available for use at McGill. TurningPoint has being replaced with a more streamlined and easier to use tool called Slido.

Polling @ McGill (also known as the Student Response System or SRS) is a technology-supported questioning strategy to assess students’ learning and encourage active classroom participation. At McGill, we are using a web-based polling and Q & A system, called Slido. During a class with polling questions, students respond from their personal device (smartphone, tablet, or laptop).

While this web page is accessible worldwide, McGill University is on land which has served and continues to serve as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. Teaching and Learning Services acknowledges and thanks the diverse Indigenous peoples whose footsteps mark this territory on which peoples of the world now gather. This land acknowledgement is shared as a starting point to provide context for further learning and action.
