AbstractStudent response systems (commonly called 'clickers') are valuable tools for engaging students in classroom interactions. In this study, we investigated the use of two types of response systems (a traditional clicker and a mobile device) by students in human physiology courses. Our results showed high student satisfaction with the use of clickers in class. A survey also provided insights into how students perceived the benefits of response systems. We found that most students favoured the use of traditional clickers over mobile clickers, with the students reporting a number of difficulties in using the latter. These difficulties could discourage students from moving ahead to more advanced levels in programmes that involve mobile device interaction with the course teacher. Thus, innovations in learning technology should proceed with caution, and with constant attention given to students' preferences and needs.
