Introduction:
One of the main functions of voting systems is to provide immediate feedback and up-to-date information from participants in educational activities. One of the available solutions recently introduced by current information and communication technologies is the school voting system. Together with the interactive chart, computer, data projector and software, they create a didactic environment suitable for presenting the teacher´s activation impulses and the subsequent collection of student responses. A learning process using the voting system increases the effectiveness of education, activates the student and introduces a new motivational stimulus and an immediate individual response of the student to various types of test questions, voting, survey and attendance in the study groups.

Methodology:
On the selected sample of respondents we pilot-tested the voting, respectively QOMO Response Device (QRF300 ARS). This is a simple radio system that synchronously receives an instant response from each respondent. The system consists of a teacher and student keyboard, a radio receiver, etc. and multi-component Qclick software that works with PowerPoint and simultaneously with another applications, making it easy to use in the teaching process.

Results:
We used voting system for checking the preparedness of selected respondents for practical teaching of medical biophysics. The results were immediately available in the form of a column diagram and a table. The system also allowed the management of subjects, study groups and subgroups, in addition to manual input, the student list could be imported from a spreadsheet.

Conclusions:
The absolute advantage of using the voting device in the learning process is that all respondents respond to the given question at the same time within a short adjustable time interval, so the teacher can get significantly more information from all respondents. Such teaching meets the attributes of modern education, it is effective, interesting, and provides students with a lot of impulses to activate, motivate and raise their level of knowledge.
