What's the best way to set up a gameshow-style buzzer for groups in a classroom?

I thought this was a fun question to think about before the weekend:

I had a faculty member ask this question, along with the addition of, "Can Canvas do this?"  Not natively, of course, but perhaps someone here has thought of a work-around or found an app or LTI that can integrate with Canvas (or not) that could fit this use case.  It would need to:

  • Record who has buzzed in first in response to a question (along the lines of Jeopardy)
  • Communicate this information clearly
  • Be cheap, preferably free
