Unlike the internet, where one has to rely on a third party to provide a wireless connection, Bluetooth is inexpensive and easily available with no dependence on manufacturers or service providers and can prove beneficial in short range communication. Aiming to inculcate wireless benefits in classrooms with virtually no expense and in an attempt to achieve more interactivity with students, a Bluetooth application "ìMeter" is developed using Bluetooth technology to form a Wireless LAN in a classroom.. It helps to boost interactivity with students, thereby making classes more effective.
