Requirements for Student Response System (SRS)

Student Response System (SRS) would be complementary to the video content development. Video lectures are delivered by instructors/ teacher. It is unidirectional by design. It does not support important real time student feedback, interaction and peer discussion.

Student Response System is very famous in western educational institutions. Some of the university courses now a day mandate a SRS/ clicker for enrolment. However each clicker costs in range of INR 1000 to INR 2000. Generally this clicker are IR, RF or internet based devices. We believe if we can develop an indigenous SRS that fills gap that would really help community.

Some of the initial requirements for Students Response System that we have found through assessment are
  • Capability of providing real time response through a PC/ Laptop
  • Collation of response should take less than 1mins of instructor time.
  • Should be able to use minimum 40 clickers simultaneously in a classroom
  • Capable of working without internet connectivity
  • The device should be able to work in a 10 X 8m room without line of sight
  • The cost of individual response device should be less than INR 500/-
