Abstract

In the Fall 2005 semester, the authors used a Tablet PC during lectures as a replacement for the chalkboard. The Tablet PC allows the instructor to write on the PC screen while facing the students, similar to an overhead projector. The advantage is that the entire presentation can be saved in electronic format and uploaded to the course website, where it is available to both the students and instructor immediately after the session ends. Students and the instructor can focus on concept learning rather than transcription. With wireless capability the instructor would be able to walk around the room while projecting his solutions in real time. This paper reports on two specific case experiences with this tool, including student data on usability and satisfaction.
