The Minister of Research and Higher Education visited HiST


Tora Aasland, the minister for research and higher education in Norway, visited HiST at February 21. One of the activities included testing and exploiting response technologies. This included to use the Student Response System in a demo lecture addressing material science, where the minister and the audience tried to figure out the strength of a beam.

The use of SRS created a lot of attention, interaction and laughter. At the end Dr. Roger Bergh from HiST demonstrated what was the correct alternative. 






Aasland was appointed as the Minister of Research and Higher Education in Norway on 18 October 2007. 

SRS 2.0, PELE 1.5, Eval 1.0 and iLike 1.0 are available for use.
