Abstract: In this paper we present a system that enhances typical synchronousteleteaching environments. The key idea is to compensate the lack ofsocial awareness and interactivity of a telelecture by allowingstudents to use hand-held devices and wireless communication tointeract with the lecturer and with other students. One example ofthe interactions enabled by the system is a feedback mechanism that allows the students to provide the lecturer with information abouthow the speed and difficulty of a lecture is perceived by thestudents. Another example is the ability of the lecturer to holdquizzes with the distributed audience. The system has beenimplemented as a prototype and it is currently being evaluatedin regular lectures at the University of Mannheim.
