We provide support for a hardware-based audience voting system called TurningPoint. A number of Schools have purchased large numbers of TurningPoint handsets for their students. There are currently TurningPoint receivers permanently installed in 11 teaching spaces on the Mile End and Whitechapel campuses.
We do not have any licenses for the web-based version

The E-Learning Unit also have a TurningPoint receiver with a maximum audience size of 250, so if you are teaching in a space which does not have a receiver permanently installed, you can borrow a receiver from us. Get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that we will only lend the receiver on a per session basis, not for extended periods of time.
- Undergraduate Medicine (MBBS) – if you teach on the MBBS programme, you can borrow clickers from the Student Office in the Garrod Building.
- Economics and Finance
- Biological and Chemical Sciences
- Engineering and Materials Science
If you are not in any of these Schools and would like to borrow some handsets to use the system, the E-Learning Unit has around 75 handsets which you can borrow on a per session basis. Please email us on email@example.com.
