TurningPoint upgrade – Summer 2018

Filed under: Audio Visual, TurningPoint — admin @ 2:24 pm

As part of our wider efforts to upgrade users to Windows 10 and Office 2016, we are also upgrading TurningPoint to the latest version. This upgrade primarily ensures compatibility with PowerPoint 2016, but also includes Single Sign-On (SSO) which will reduce the number of separate login and passwords that staff and students are required to use.

The upgrade will be rolling out over the summer of 2018. If you are planning to use TurningPoint between July and September 2018, please contact the Learning Technology Team for further guidance (ltt@essex.ac.uk), or see the Introduction to EVS with TurningPoint course in Moodle.
