    Hi,
    I am trying to buy a audio response system. It is a set of small remotes so students or other audience can vote in real time. I want to use it while lecturing and therefore i want to be able to present the alternatives in powerpoint (or keynote) and to get the results in powerpoint without having to log out into another software.
    This exists for several different brands but only for windows powerpoint. have anyone heard about something that works for mac?


    Some example links (without mac integration into powerpoint):

    If your class size is 40 or less, I would suggest you look into free online alternatives like this: https://www.polleverywhere.com/

    This integrates with Keynote or Powerpoint and allows students to use any device (phone or laptop). I've found the stand alone clickers to be a royal pain. Students forget them (never the case for their phones!), batteries die, and a certain % just don't work.

    I downloaded it and indeed it is what i want in terms of the software. However i disagree with the hardware thing. I have used one type and it is advantage to not have the students fiddling to much with their smartphones (they tend to be very distracting ;) )
