Toward the effective use of voting machines in physics lectures
1.Examples include the Personal Response System manufactured by GTCO CalComp, 〈http://www.gtcocalcomp.com/interwriteprs.htm〉. The voting system used at The Ohio State University, which has two-way communication capability, was designed by Lei Bao and its construction was subcontracted. It is not yet commercially available.
2.Voting systems are discussed at 〈http://celt.ust.hk/ideas/prs/exp_share.htm〉.
