Classroom Response Systems (CRSs) have proven to be effective tools in support of classroom interaction. Most existing CRSs utilize proprietary hardware, purchased by students as classroom “clickers”. This project set out to take advantage of the near ubiquitous student use of mobile computing devices such as smart phones, tablets and laptops, in class, by utilizing any of those devices as CRS-inputs. The flexibility of a Web-based CRS allows the boundaries of typical CRSs to be extended, both with a wider array of question/response types, and with different usage patterns in class and before class. This paper describes the design of a Web-based CRS, experience using the tool in class, and ongoing work to extend the tool into new areas.
