Desire2Learn and Turning Technologies announce plans to integrate the TurningPoint audience response system with the Desire2Learn Learning Environment.
Desire2Learn Inc., a world-leading provider of mission-critical enterprise eLearning systems, and Turning Technologies, LLC, a leader in the audience response industry, have announced a partnership to begin work to integrate the TurningPoint audience response system with the Desire2Learn Learning Environment.
This partnership provides the initial framework for Desire2Learn and Turning Technologies to offer an interactive learning environment for educators and learners. The result of this collaboration will assist instructors to assess learner achievement and progress in real-time.
“Creating a seamless integration between TurningPoint and Desire2Learn is directly aligned with one of our key goals – to develop new, enriched TurningPoint functionality that allows our users to collaborate with their most commonly used toolset and to provide them with the most intuitive, productive experience to building their interactive classroom,” stated Don Arthurs, Turning Technologies’ Vice President of Research & Development.
Once completed, Desire2Learn users will have the ability to conduct live and interactive polling- all managed from within the Desire2Learn Learning Environment. This will provide instructors with the ability to collect immediate feedback from learners in an environment they are familiar with.
“Desire2Learn is committed to supporting our clients’ eLearning missions, and it is with the support and cooperation of partners like Turning Technologies that we are able to adapt quickly to meet client needs,” states Jeremy Auger, Desire2Learn Chief Operating Officer. “We are excited to expand our offerings by combining efforts and integrating our technology with reputable companies such as Turning Technologies.”
