How to Email Unregistered Clicker Users

Within your Blackboard Learn course, you can see all users and their device IDs. To email a reminder to students to register their clickers:

  1. Go to Control Panel > Course Tools > Turning Technologies Instructor Registration Tool. In the window, you’ll see a list of all users in the course along with the device ID registered to each student.
  2. Click “Send email to all unregistered students.” A message opens with the names of all students who have not registered a clicker. You can modify the message as needed to include instructions or more information.
  3. Click Submit. An email will be sent to their uh.edu email address.

How to Set-up a Clicker Registration Link

Log in to your Blackboard Learn course and select the course page where you want to add the registration link. It is recommended you add the link to either the Course Content or Course Information page. In the example below, we’ll add the link to the Course Content page.

From the Course Content page:
  1. Click Tools > More Tools > Registration Block.
  2. On the Create Link page, Bb Learn names the link TurningPoint Registration Tool by default. You can rename the link something students will recognize such as Clicker Registration.
  3. In the description, consider adding a message regarding what students should do if they need help. See #3 below for a suggested message.
  4. Click Submit. The registration link now displays on the course page.
