To replicate some of the advantages of a small coures, Mika Lavaque‐Manty, LSA Department of Political Science, uses LectureTools as a way for students to easily ask questions or request clarification in a large course. LectureTools allows students to submit questions at anytime during lecture. These questions are then responded to by GSIs or directly addressed by Lavaque‐Manty during the class. Regardless of who responds, both the question and response are made available to all students immediately through the LectureTools interface and continue to be available for students after class.
