There are general, educational benefits of audience response systems (ARS), although relatively little application (or evaluation) in medical education. We briefly review changes in medical education worldwide over the last two decades, highlighting areas in which new tools, such as ARS, are valuable. We evaluated an ARS for more than 300 first-year, graduate-entry medical students, used in four 2-hour educational sessions, summarising the benefits and limitations of the system.
