Considering the exponential growth in communication, network and web technology areas, Innovative E-Learning practices are gaining importance. This paper proposes a model for meaningful interactive engagement of teachers and learners in classrooms or in distant mode. Here we make use of short message services for conducting quizzes pertaining to a concept in a course. Electronic Clickers which were extensively used in this regard have a number of limitations. In this context it is possible to make use of mobile phones to our advantage. The scores obtained can be considered as a student state variable which can possibly belong to a certain fuzzy set. This way we can identify more state variables belonging to student/teacher domains and based on certain fuzzy rules, we can classify the students. Now it is possible to provide personalized recommendations based on a course ontology which is used to connect different concepts in a course.
