This is an interesting realtime classroom feedback tool which allows students to respond to classroom input on a range of devices using a range of different formats, from simple true false responses to summaries, image response etc. All responses are then pushed back to the teacher's interface. Interesting tool if you are working with a classroom full of students with mixed mobile devices.
