In collaboration with DoIT, UMBC's Bookstore has reduced the price of all clicker "bundles" (hardware + software) to match the direct purchase price for a one year code ($34.99) by Turning Point (now known as Point Solutions following its merger with Echo360 earlier this year). This is being done to facilitate sales of the remaining, pre-pandemic hardware clickers that the Bookstore has in stock.
In addition, students who previously purchased a clicker bundle for $45.00 this semester, can request a refund of $10.00 from the Bookstore to match the new clicker bundle pricing. Students must show a receipt for proof of purchase, and the refund offer expires after Friday, September 30, 2022.
Note: The access code available in a clicker "bundle" can be used either on the hardware device or on a student's mobile device (but the two devices cannot be used at the same time in the same session). For more information, see the following FAQ:
How do I register my clicker OR phone for TurningPoint in Blackboard
Currently, the Bookstore has 990 clicker bundles in stock and 192 students have already purchased bundles this semester. The Bookstore does not plan to offer software (code only) sales until the current hardware clicker bundle inventory is sold off, but will continue to match the one year Turning/Point Solutions price for all clicker bundles until they are all sold.
