PINGO: Peer Instruction for Very Large Groups
In this research, we introduce a new web-based solution that enables the transfer of the widely established Peer Instruction method to lectures with far more than 100 participants. The proposed solution avoids several existing flaws that hinder the widespread adoption of PI in lectures with larger groups. We test our new solution in a series of lectures with more than 500 participants and evaluate our prototype using the technology acceptance model. The evaluation results as well as qualitative feedback of course participants indicate that our new solution is a useful artifact to transfer the PI method to large groups.
