Turning Technologies LLC has announced the latest release of TurningPoint AnyWhere software for PC and Mac platforms.

To accommodate various presentation styles and technology integrations, TurningPoint AnyWhere combined with Turning's ResponseCard keypads or ResponseWare, a web-based polling application, creates a wireless response and voting system allowing presenters to ask interactive questions within their preferred presentation application -PowerPoint or Mac Keynote presentations, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PDF content, web pages, multimedia, and more.

Originally developed to accommodate users interested in a polling option that didn't require PowerPoint, TurningPoint AnyWhere uses a floating toolbar to poll participants or students at anytime using any type of digital content. Results can be collected anonymously or tracked by individual with the use of a participant list. Educators also benefit from integration with certain LMS systems, including Blackboard and WebCT, that supports the ability to import class rosters and upload session results into a gradebook.

The 2.0 release of TurningPoint AnyWhere provides increased functionality and improved interface design to both PC and Mac users including:

* Question Lists - Presenters can create and store interactive questions in advance.

* Dynamic Charts - Real-time results during polling.

* Screen Shot Report - Automatic screen shots capture question content in other digital applications and correlate results on a question-by-question basis.

* Enhanced ResponseWare Support - Participants can respond to interactive polling questions using their web-enabled devices including iPod touch, iPhone, BlackBerry smartphones, laptops, or desktop computers.
