Audience Response Systems (ARS) are gradually being introduced into educational settings, having previously proved their value in business. Hand-held keypads allow students to enter data in response to questions or statements displayed on a public screen. The captured data is displayed on the public screen and enables both academic and students to immediately see how the whole group has responded. The anonymity afforded by an ARS encourages individuals to fully participate without fear of ridicule or loss of face.
