Abstract: Current personal response systems (PRS) commonly referred to as ‘clickers’ are not part of a common communications platform. PRS and other telecommunications devices owned by the students and in the classroom with them use mutually exclusive vertical tracks or message protocols. This paper provides a technical description of the problem and a solution that allows students to respond to learning activity sessions (e.g. a poll, vote or answer to a question) with a variety of devices (smart phones, wireless tablets, and netbooks) in an integrated, flexible manner using a transparent different delivery option (e.g. HTTP)
