We are in a similar position and have tentatively chosen the PRS system
distributed by EduCue. It is an IR system that has been around for a
while. The thing we can't decide on is how to handle getting the
remotes to the students. The options seem to be to have the bookstore
sell the remotes to the students and then have them register through
some type of web interface (some systems are more geared to this model
than others) or have a set in the department that students pick up as
they come into class. Any further insights on the pros and cons of this
issue would be very helpful.

I would be very interested in the opinions of those out there that are
using Group response systems. We are going to purchase one for a new
225 seat lecture hall. Any ideas about which systems are good and how
they are managed (controll of romotes, IR vs FM radio, etc.)
