YACRS was introduced at the University of Glasgow in September 2014, initially with two first year computing science classes with a total of approximately 170 students. The initial pilot introduction was extremely successful, and the software is now in use with a wide range of courses. While the key purpose of YACRS was to replace the classroom response clicker systems, which were mostly limited to multiple-choice interactions, the use of students Internet devices allows a greater range of interactions to be possible. YACRS also allows text response questions, and can also support multiple questions being active at the same time, which can be useful as a means running quick class tests or collecting student feedback responses.
