AbstractMany lecturers in universities are held in big lecture theater which may not be the most desirable environment to carry out effective class discussions. Class, an interactive mobile learning platform developed and adopted in the University of Hong Kong, enables real-time interactive discussion among students and lecturer through their tablet PCs and smartphones and facilitates classroom discussion of various sizes and styles, gathering opinions from all classmates in an organized manner that is conducive to effective and fruitful discussions. It is a useful tool in facilitating multidimensional discussions that accommodate various types of discussion and teaching styles required in language learning. Learning no longer stresses on the one-way knowledge transmission from teachers to students, but in enhancing the capacity of the student to develop critical thinking ability to analyze issues from multiple angles in an organized and logical way. Discussions have hence become an increasingly important part of interactive learning. This system encourages more active participation from students to foster a more interactive class environment that is optimal for effective language learning and teaching.
