Turning account registration

Turning registration for faculty

Learn how to register for a Turning account to begin polling in the classroom.

All users need a Turning account. You will need to register for an instructor account in order to use Turning for student engagement and assessment in the classroom.

A Turning account can be created directly from WebCampus by clicking on the Turning Account Registration link found under Account on the global navigation menu. Both you and your students will use this link to create a Turning account and connect it to your WebCampus account. The connection between the two accounts makes it possible for you to push student participation grades in Turning directly to the WebCampus gradebook.

The Turning Account Registration link can also be added to the course navigation menu. To do so, go to Settings in your course and click on the Navigation tab. Find Turning Account Registration and enable it. Click Save at the bottom to save the settings. The registration link that appears on the course menu is the same link as the one under user Account. You and your students can use either one to create and access your Turning account.

Note: It is critical that students register for Turning using this registration link on WebCampus. This will ensure their Turning account is connected with WebCampus. If they already have a Turning account that is not connected with WebCampus, they need to log on to their Turning account using this link to make the connection.
