Abstract

As is common in the standard lecture format, students rarely ask questions when seeking clarification or further understanding of a topic. Whatever the underlying reason for this may be, it certainly poses a problem for the lecturers delivering these lectures due to the difficultly in determining the cohorts' current understanding of the materials. This paper presents a system (FAST.Q) designed to encourage students to feel more able and comfortable to ask questions and provide lecture feedback in real-time, allowing the lecturer to answer these questions for the benefit of the student and the whole class. In this paper the prototype system is presented, with the feedback of the initial trials. The usability and applicability of the system is then presented and evaluated.
