Alan Hecht, former eLSS from Abington, let me know about this. According to Alan:
It even lets you download a PPT slide that you can embed in a lecture slideshow and will update instantly as students vote.
I'm (Alan Hecht, this is) in talks with them on pricing and other issues. Yes, students have to pay SMS fees, but a faculty member can decide to use it for just one lecture and not have to have students buy keypads.

A recorded interview with Dr. Elina Arnold and Dr. Christine Masters on using clickers is now available in iTunes. See http://tlt.its.psu.edu/news/index.html#clickers.

Kinda late for the classes piloting clickers this Fall but I did put a few tips from what I have learned. Your comments are welcome! - Qi
I have just been informed by our bookstore that the clickers are selling for $46.65. If a student returns a clicker to the bookstore for buy-back, they will receive $23.25. Used clickers will be sold for 25% less than the new clicker cost.
Any instructor who has had the experience Duncan describes can appreciate the idea of using clickers, or personal response devices, to gauge student participation and understanding. At the University of Delaware, with nearly 20,000 students, clickers are not only engaging students during class, they're starting to be used for homework assignments and as campus-wide polling devices....
These partners have presentation materials designed to accompny their texbooks that will work with the Interwrite clickers. This link will take you to Interwrite's listing.
