      This presentation discusses optivote - a radio-frequency voting system which can increase interactivity in a session - it works the same way as the 'ask the audience' feature of 'Who wants to be a millionaire'. Each set consists of 32 voting handsets, a laptop loaded with the necessary software, a radio receiver and instructions. The system will work with powerpoint slides to provide a range of question types as part of a presentation. It can give immediate feedback to students on their answers and the lecturer can obtain reports about the individual responses of their students.
