Post:

Tapplers,
For those of you who are running Personal Response Systems,
Have you developed in house software to integrate presentations and the
responses?
Have any of you used these systems for very large classes i.e. 300 - 500
students?
If you use it for this large of classes, do you run into delay problems
because of the time required for the system to receive this number of
responses?

We are currently planning to install the Educue PRS in our 500 seat
lecture hall. The Educue software seems very limited for presentation
aspects. We are looking at commercial software but it seems to either
be very expensive or limited to 250 transmitter max.

Many Thanks,
