Using a text message service to send questions during a lecture gives the audience the opportunity to ask questions directly and to have an impact on the lecture.
Displaying text messages on a screen (after they have been reviewed and approved) allows the participants to express their opinions, ask questions and comment, which makes the lecture more interesting for the audience who feel they more involved.
