Warning: Not backwards compatible

Please note that TurningPoint 8 is NOT backwards compatible. For example, if an instructor has TurningPoint 8 on their desktop and goes into a lecture hall with a podium computer that has TurningPoint Cloud, it will not work. Anything created in TurningPoint 8 cannot be used in older versions. However, anything created in older versions of TurningPoint can be brought into TurningPoint 8 and slides will work successfully. At this time, UMBC lecture halls currently supports TurningPoint Cloud.
