This study proposed a classroom response system (CRS) different from existing commercial product. Modern and widespread used personal smart devices are utilized as the teacher-side controller and student-side response devices in the CRS instead of early infrared or radio frequency-based remote control. A prototype was developed for the proposed CRS, and it will be kept developing for further full functionality in CRS with the advantages and features of smart devices and modern network technologies.
