Electronic voting now available on CFS

The software that supports the electronic voting system, (also known as ‘clickers’ or ‘who wants to be a millionaire?’) is now available on CFS. Turning Point 2008 can be used to write voting questions on any CFS PC in a special version of PowerPoint (2007 or 2003). The drivers to enable voting in teaching rooms, computer rooms and labs are being installed across campus. All first year BS, MB, MG and MP students now have handsets for the full academic year. So if you are conducting voting with first years, all that is now needed is a small USB receiver connected to the presenting machine. Three voting receivers and an additional 115 handsets are available for teaching use with other undergraduate or postgraduate students.
