Abstract
The number of internet-ready mobile devices is steadily increasing. Today these devices are particularly well accepted among young people who build the main part of the audience in universitary courses. Using smart devices offers a great possibility to increase student-teacher interactions. In this paper, we present an e-learning tool called nuKIT (networked university KIT) which provides interfaces to smartphones and the web for establishing several types of interactions between a lecturer and the students. The tool offers students the possibility to give feedback regarding the presentation speed and to ask questions. As well, the lecturer can pose questions to the students. nuKIT is a lightweight tool which is particularly well-suited for use in academic courses, but also in related scenarios. We illustrate the technological background of nuKIT, give implementation and usage recommendations and present an evaluation of the tool originating from data collected in three courses at KIT.
