SMS-based audience response service
questionSMS is an opt-in service that enables you to receive questions and feedback during your lectures and seminars on a web browser, without interrupting the flow of your lecture or presentation.
If you enable this service, students can send an SMS to ask you a question or send feedback during lecture. You can also create simple polls using questionSMS.
You can create a code for each question. Students will respond by sending an SMS to 77577 in the following format: SMScode message.
These SMSes will be collated at the questionSMS website, where you can see the results live or store them for viewing later.
There is no cost involved in using this service. However, students will be charged by their respective telcos for each SMS sent at the normal local rate.
