Publication: Design and Implementation of I2Vote

Below the abstract and a link to the full text of a recently published article by our group concerning I2Vote.

Design and implementation of I2Vote--an interactive image-based voting system using windows mobile devices. Int J Med Inform. 2011 Aug;80(8):562-9.



To develop, implement and test a novel audience response system (ARS) that allows image based interaction for radiology education.


The ARS developed in this project is based on standard Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) (HP iPAQ 114 classic handheld) running Microsoft® Windows Mobile® 6 Classic with a large 3.5 in. TFT touch screen (320×240 pixel resolution), high luminance and integrated IEEE 802.11b/g wireless. For software development Visual Studio 2008 professional (Microsoft) was used and all components were written in C#. Two test sessions were conducted to test the software technically followed by two real classroom tests in a radiology class for medical students on thoracic radiology.


The novel ARS, called I2Vote, was successfully implemented and provided an easy to use, stable setup. The acceptance of both students and teachers was very high and the interaction with the students improved because of the anonymous interaction possibility.


An easy to use handheld based ARS that enables interactive, image-based, teaching is achieved. The system effectively adds an extra dimension to the use of an ARS.
