UMKC will start to apply TurningPoint 5, the latest version of the TurningPoint software in Fall, 2013. This new version will replace TurningPoint 2008 in all ILE classrooms from August 1st. The change is made due to reasons including:
- TurningPoint 2008 is not compatible with Office 2013, which will be installed in all ILE classrooms and computer labs by 08/16.
- Better integration and advanced features in TurningPoint 5.
- Better Compatibility for Mac users.
