Abstract: Transferring knowledge and training skills for large audiences is quite challenging if one considers that the actual generation of students belongs to the zapping generation. Interactivity and feedback from the audience are key features for lecturers concerned with the effectiveness of their lectures. A powerful tool in activating students is a student response system. It allows to obtain highly accurate and immediate statistics on the opinion of the audience. Moreover, students feel more involved and consequently more motivated to take part in the solution of conceptual problems. Asking questions to students and getting them into vivid discussions with each other clearly results in a better learning effect. Keywords: student response system, large audience, immediate feedback, student activation, audience participation
