it’s probably a cheap way (relative to some other classroom interaction setup) to engage students in individual or group responses in the classroom. it however doesnt work on my work laptop (*duh*) cos you’ll need minimally XP SP3 (ours’ SP2) and the no. of mouses supported will increase from 5 to 20-25 with Vista/Win7. you’ll need office2007 n above installed too (cost is probably not the major concern here, familiarisation with the new ribbon style probably is).
you can also tap (and contribute later) on the communities’ expertise and resources if you’re keen to explore mouse mischief. templates created and shared by the community goes here, and the developer’s blog has a continual string of tips as well (:
