Recently, there is an explosive growth of smartphone availability. In this work, we studied how mobile and Internet-based Student Response System improves the learning process. We used a free software application (Socrative©) to create a set of questions that can be deployed during the class. It was used in four different courses in three different academic colleges. The students were asked to evaluate the contribution of this tool to their own learning process. Participation was usually very high and introducing this tool encouraged continuous learning. It also enabled a better feedback to the teacher about the class level.
