Interactive response systems

As we investigate ways to use mobile Internet
devices in our classrooms, it hit me that they could be used as an
interactive student response system (ISRS). Since current ISRSs are
around \$100 per person, why not invest in a more useful device such as
the iPod Touch, Sony PSP, or Nintendo DS (with Opera)?

I found one company that already is thinking this way, Pocket Mobility
with their Quizzler Pro
product. Me on the other hand, loves the
challenge of coding something up myself.

Has anyone worked with ISRSs? What did you like? What didn’t you like?
Is this something I should look at as a summer project? 🙂
