A next generation of Student Response System (SRS), an EU funded project – Edumecca, is equipped with a set of advanced response technologies to provide services in effective learning. The system is a web-based open source and enables the storage, retrieval and visualization of response data automatically. The research output has been spread to industrial training and higher educational institutes in more than 15 EU countries and USA. The services enable students to respond their understanding interactively. This system is affordable, simple, fast and easy to operate as long as the Internet is connected. Meanwhile, the system is generic, adaptive and self-independent that can be integrated with other learning management environments, such as blackboard, Smart-board and subject oriented learning management systems.
The SRS has been used in Hungarian Association of Welding Technology and Material Testing – MHtE ( ). Meanwhile, the institute distributed the SRS to 90 companies and 1000 people in welding communities ( ). The results of SRS exploitation have been presented at the main welding events during the project lifetime, including the European Welding Federation General assembly, the International Institute of Welding General Assembly, and 2 mayor international welding conferences in Europe ( ).
The SRS has been disseminated in international conferences, workshops, companies, schools, universities, including a demonstration of Student Response Services for iPod and iPhone in the largest International Conference in the world (about 2000 attendees) on Technology Supported Learning and Training EDUCA 2009, Berlin, Germany, December 3, 2009, “EDUCA is being touted by organizers as the largest global e-learning conference for the corporate, education and public service sectors”. SRS project as one out of 5 was invited to demonstrate it in EU stand in Berlin.
Its success has also led to additional major funding streams for further research. For example, an internationalized SRS by DO-IT project, also sponsored by EU funding, has been released in 2010 with three EU languages, Hungarian, Romania and English for EU industrial and educational training, recently released with Arabic and Chinese languages. Thus, the impact may be extended on mobile learning in Middle East and Far East users.
