PointSolutions for students
A PointSolutions account is required for all users. If you don’t yet have an account, one can be created directly from WebCampus. A University email address (e.g., @nevada.unr.edu) is recommended but not required for PointSolutions account registration. If you already have an account, you will need to log in via WebCampus in order to link your WebCampus and PointSolutions accounts. You will only have to do this once.
Please note: While a University email address is not required to create your PointSolutions account, it is required to receive the discounted subscription price ($15 per year). Before registering for a new account, make sure your University email address is your preferred address in WebCampus (you can update this in MyNevada). See instructions below for more information.
Below you will find links to step-by-step instructions and a video guide for creating and registering your PointSolutions account, connecting it with WebCampus and purchasing a subscription. You will also learn about different subscription options and the mobile app.
Note that PointSolutions by Echo360 was previously TurningPoint by Turning Technologies. You may still see some references to TurningPoint when setting up or logging into your account.

The app can be downloaded for free from the App Store or GooglePlay. A subscription is required to participate in class sessions. You only need to log in to your account in order to use the app; you do not need to register your phone with PointSolutions.
