Abstract

This study highlights the importance of using technology in increasing communication and interaction between students and teacher as a tool that helps access information through the fastest and latest technological methods. During this paper search a prototype has been developed named (InTeRaCt), and tested with random users, including students and teachers from SQU. The survey result which conducted from some users who tested the prototype was much stimulating, explaining how helpful such tool could support the interactivity between students and teachers, and affecting in positive way in student education process.
