Abstract

The use of Student Response Systems (SRS) in Higher education is not a new phenomenon. SRS or clickers have been in use since the 1960s (Judson and Sawada, 2002). Contemporary research draws upon the positive effect of using SRS on factors such as engagement, participation and peer learning (Caldwell, 2007). Student Response Systems are gaining popularity in the learning environment and have been used to improve student interaction, engagement, and attention (Draper and Brown, 2004) as well as promoting attendance, stimulating discussion, facilitating feedback and improving learner performance (Kay, 2004). This paper reports on the use of SRS combined with other e-learning technologies to facilitate feedback, promote reflection and assess the student experience.
