This paper provides a new method for enhancing feedback to a lecturer while he/she is teaching in real-time. It is well accepted that interactive teaching enhances learning and critical thinking. However, in a practical situation the lecturer cannot continually ask if the students have any questions and students are normally hesitant to ask questions, especially with a large cohort. Various eLearning tools that provide feedback are available such the Poll Everywhere, Sli.do, Glisser, Turning Technologies ARS, OMBEA, Socrative, iClicker, ARS Nova, Top Hat, Shakespeak, Sendsteps and Via Response. They are well received by students, but these tools are digital in the sense that they are limited to multiple choice. With this new method, the student can highlight on their devices the part(s) that he/she does not understand, and the system provides a real-time analysis and feedback in the form of display on the lecturer’s screen. This device has been built and tested on a small number of students and the feedback from staff and students is very encouraging.
