Bluetooth today, has conquered almost all mobile devices including Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), handhelds, smart phones and mobile phones. 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 “μMeter” 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. In this paper, we first give a brief overview of Bluetooth technology and its applications. Details of the application development platform and Bluetooth requirements are then given. The results of the “μMeter” application are presented, followed by the conclusion and recommendations on future work.
