[publication] Developing a Web-Based Question-Driven Audience Response System Supporting BYOD

Our scientific publication about Realfeedback titled „Developing a Web-Based Question-Driven Audience Response System Supporting BYOD“ is now published as part of the Special J.UCS-Issue „Interaction in Massive Courses„.

Question-driven Audience Response Systems (ARSs) are in the focus of research since the 1960s. Since then, the technology has changed and therefore systems have evolved too. This work is about conception and implementation of the web-based ARS RealFeedback which uses the principle of bring your own device (BYOD). A state-of-the-art analysis compares the features of existing web-based ARSs. The most important findings are used for the conception and the implementation of the system. Thinking-aloud tests, and the first usages during lectures confirm that the chosen requirements are very significant and valuable for lecturers.

[iphone] Realfeedback App

Bildschirmfoto 2013-06-21 um 21.09.02Im Rahmen unserer Vorlesung „Mobile Applications 2013“ ist die App Realfeedback entstanden. Damit ist es möglich das Audience Response System der TU Graz Realfeedback direkt mit einer native App am iPhone / iPad zu verwenden.

RealFeedback makes it easy to ask questions and get answers, like polling your audience during a lecture. The creator makes a project, adds some questions and shares the project ID with the participants. Each question can be activated individually. As soon as a question is active, participants can answer it until the creator closes it. Then the results are shown to the creator and all participants.
