Turning Technologies LLC has announced the availability of ResponseWare on the Apple App Store. ResponseWare is a polling application that allows students to submit responses to interactive questions using their iPhone or iPod touch. The application immediately transfers their responses to a TurningPoint interactive polling slide which presents the class with a dynamic chart of the aggregate response data and stores student response data for later evaluation.
ResponseWare enables mobile learning – creating the ability for students to respond to interactive questions both inside and outside of the classroom. Students already accustomed to instant connectivity using their mobile devices will now be able to communicate their understanding of course materials and concepts immediately to their teacher using those same tools. In addition, they will find the anonymous ability to ask questions and seek further insights as a useful learning technique.
Turning’s first release of ResponseWare was in September 2008. With the popularity of both iPhone and iPod touch across the country, Turning sought to take advantage of the enhanced functionality available with application installations and further develop an improved user experience for students.
ResponseWare is available free from Apple’s App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
