Random Name Generator for Classroom Use?

Recently an instructor asked “A couple of years ago at SIDLIT (Summer Institute on Distance Learning and Instructional Technology) you randomly chose participants for (door) prizes using the computer. Can that same idea be used to randomly choose students in a class to respond to questions? I just thought it might be an interesting way to keep the class motivated to stay awake.”

Here’s the answer: There’s a random name generator that could be used to accomplish what you wish at
Be sure to click the "Click here" link above the Random Name Generator button to create a class list. You can then bookmark the page (with the list) and/or download it and use each time you need to generate names for that class randomly. You could create a roster once for each class and then never have to type those names again.
