Building on a pilot experiment using Twitter and word clouds, we built ChimeIn, a simple, lightweight cloud-based application. ChimeIn lets learners weigh in on multiple choice and free response questions and gives learners and instructors a robust suite of data visualizations that can power a much broader range of pedagogical practices than simple clickers. Students can respond to questions or prompts in ChimeIn through any cloud-friendly or web-enabled device or through Internet-friendly protocols such as SMS if they choose.
