Pedagogical Use of ‘uReply’:
A Mobile Technology to Enhance Classroom Interactions
uReply is a student response system (SRS) and a cloud-based classroom communication tool, which was designed to facilitate classroom interactions using mobile devices. It was developed and launched at the CUHK in 2012. It is well-known for its following characteristics:
Easy to use: Students are allowed to use uReply in their own devices (e.g., smartphone, tablet and notebook) instead of the keypad devices such as “clickers” provided by teachers.
Campus-wide: it supports multiple classes to use it instantaneously in the campus, no matter how big the classes are.
Cross-platform: it works on most of the updated web browsers, and in various digital devices and operating systems.
Cloud-based: it collects instant student’ responses and generates instant reports.
In the coming workshop, our team will share cases of how teachers use it and explore the pedagogical use of uReply, including:
various feasible solutions for pre-class, in-class and after-class activities;
upgraded reports consist of analysis of students’ in-class participation;
pedagogies such as flipped learning, peer learning, and gamification; and
opportunities for teaching and learning outside the classroom
