Turning Launches Computer-free Classroom Response System


Classroom technology developer Turning Technologies has launched a new classroom response system that doesn't require computers or projectors. The new ResponseCard AnyWhere is a wireless, handheld system designed for standalone use to capture data from interactive classroom polls and other types of feedback.

ResponseCard AnyWhere is a battery-powered unit offering and LCD screen (about 1.97" x 0.79" viewable area), menu-driven navigation, and support for storing data from about 100 polls (or 5,000 votes). The portable unit measures 4.5" (L) x 2.4" (W) x 0.875" (D) and weighs in at 2 ounces with batteries.

Data collected by the handheld units is stored in the receivers and downloaded to computers via USB using the ResponseCard AnyWhere Desktop software.

Other features include:

  • 5,000 minutes of battery life when in use;
  • Range of 400 feet;
  • 82 radio frequency channels; and
  • Four navigation buttons, a menu button, and a display button.

ResponseCard AnyWhere is available now. More information can be found at Turning's site here.
