A Classroom Response System (CRS) is technology that helps to promote class participation. CRS systems allows students to answer questions posed by the lecturer in class with the summary results displayed almost immediately on screen. NUS uses three CRS:
Poll Everywhere, a BYOD (bring your own device) classroom response system, and
Archipelago, a web application.
Poll Everywhere is a BYOD (bring your own device) classroom response system that shows response results directly in the presentation slides.
Archipelago is a lightweight web application created to inject interactivity into classes.
Students, in team or solo, can response to a wide variety of questions posted by the instructor. Real time collation tools helps the instructor to make sense of the student responses on the fly.
