Every student has a powerful wireless signal transmitter, his or her cell phone, that can be used to replace the "clicker" as a personal response device. Our mobile phone-based response system (iQlickers) collects and analyzes the answers or opinions sent in by the students as SMS (short message service) messages. The statistic of the answers is displayed online in the lecture hall. On the basis of the statistic, group discussion and peer instruction can be conducted. No setup in the lecture halls and purpose-built response pads (clickers) or receivers are needed. The operation cost of our system is very low, but class interaction can be greatly enhanced.
