The University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN) undertook an “interactive response system” (IRS) pilot scheme using IML Question Wizard (IML), complete with 100 handsets, during semester one of the 2004/2005 academic year. This case study will explain the scheme rationale and methodology of implementation. A number of example applications will be explored and evaluated, including IRS use by academic and support staff, as well as utilising the system at a number of conferences. The case study will conclude with a look at UCLAN’s future plans to expand the system.
