This is part of the Student Response Systems in Action series.

Over 1000 students at IC are using student response systems on campus and a dozen faculty are making use of both the Turning Technologies system and other web-based systems. There are many ways of using the systems including engaging students in large lectures, assessment and attendance. Several events are scheduled this spring to share the possibilities of this technology.
