AbstractThanks to the advancement in technology, web-based classroom response system is available in leveraging mobile phones to perform function in similar to that of traditional 'clickers. Mobile phones can be used to enrich communication in classroom. Teachers do not need to hand over the clicker devices to students anymore. Individual students can respond to teachers' questions right on their mobile devices. The paper reports two pilot cases in which teachers at two universities in Hong Kong adopted the web-based classroom response system. The primary objective of the study was to evaluate the feasibility of such practice in real classroom situation. However, the results have not been all promising. The success of web-based classroom response system was dependent on the possession of high-end mobile devices and skills to maneuver these devices. © 2011 Shun Leung Lam, Kevin Wong, Joseph Mohan, Dongyan Xu, Paul Lam.
