I have been using It is a nice middle ground between clickers and texting. It works much like clickers, except students can simply text responses or send them through their laptops. You can build predeveloped multiple choice/true-false questions or just open ended questions. Their responses to open ended questions will stream onto your webpage (and overhead projector if you want). It also has a plugin that allows you to run all of this through powerpoint so that you don't have to move back and forth from their webpage in the middle of class.
