How to Help Your Students

Where can students buy a clicker? 

Students can purchase a Turning Point NXT-02 or NXT-03 clicker from the following places:

UNF Bookstore

Turning Technologies Web Store (UNF School Code: uNF2)

Other Students: Sometimes students will sell their clickers when they are done using them. This is usually okay, as long as students are not trying to share one clicker at the same time.

*Note: If a student purchases a clicker second-hand, some device setting may need to be reset for the clicker to function properly. Please see the student help section for more information. 

Where can students buy a ResponseWare code? 

Students can purchase a ResponseWare code from Turning Technologies:

 

Turning Technologies Web Store (UNF School Code: uNF2)

 

Access codes can also be purchased during the registration process in Canvas, where they will be asked to enter a registration code, or prompted to buy one if they do not already have one.
