Using student lists from DIT’s WebCourses.dit.ie with Turningpoint clickers

After yesterdays clickers workshop I have been trying out a few new tools.

First on my list was to try importing a student list from our virtual learning environment https://webcourses.dit.ie. The tutorial on how to do this is available at http://www.turningtechnologies.com/flash/tutorials/tp421/421%20Integrations%20Import_demo_skin.swf.

This integration worked out really well and I could import a full student list from WebCourses into my Participant list in my Turningpoint/PowerPoint slides. Then Ken Lacey and I tested out some quiz questions , saved the responses and exported the data back to https://webcourses.dit.ie. This data was then available in the GradeBook. This tool can definitely be encouraged as another means to record results for summative assessment or continuous assessments.
