Abstract

A new type of Student Response System (SRS) based up on the latest wireless technologies and ; hand held mobile devices has been developed to enhance active learning methods and assess students' understanding. The key services involve a set of XML technologies, web services and modern mobile devices. A group consisting of engineers, scientists and instructors with pedagogical competence, from seven European countries has designed the services. The new SRS provides intuitive control interfaces, which an instructor quickly learns how to use, provides more flexible and cheaper response services than existing on‑site technologies based upon so‑called "clickers", since it uses the Wi‑Fi or mobile network to provide responses from students. The technology may be used for in‑class, laboratory and distance training purposes, the latter being an entirely new option in SRS technology. We report experiences from using this SRS technology in physics teaching in engineering classes, as well as in distance learning in Europe.
