Instructions for adding an External Tool in Moodle for Turning Tech Clicker Registration.

Turning Technologies recently retired TurningPoint 5. And they are moving away from TurningPoint Cloud (a.k.a "Turning Cloud").

There is no longer a "Turning Tech" block to add to your course and you will have to add an external tool so students can register their clickers:
