Abstract [en]

Information and communication technologies have changed the traditional concept of education and improved existing educational methods. Student Response System is a new teaching system that combines technology and education. Student Response System encourages immediate feedback on teaching content, which not only improves student engagement, learning, and satisfaction but also enhances their understanding of course materials. The purpose of this paper is to study the reasons and motivations that affecting the use of SRS also the challenges that are faced by teachers from technology faculty at Linnaeus University. In this study, a qualitative research method is used to conduct a semi-structured interview with eight teachers who have the experience of using the Student Response System and collect data as well. Data analysis and identification of three major themes based onresearch questions and related literature. According to the interview results, the reasons why teachers use such a system is that it can promote students' participation, learning and provide timely feedback, but they still face problems such as insufficient software functions, network instability, teaching time constraints. The study may provide suggestions for improving teaching methods and help other Swedish universities and departments to use SRS better.Also software designers can get some advice.
