Use of the tablet PC for human factors instruction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Tablet PCs are laptop computers that allow the instructor to use a special stylus to write digital ink on the screen which then can be saved to an electronic file. This offers human factors courses several nice features: 1) cleaner, better, more interactive lectures; 2) quicker and more effective student feedback; 3) the ability to save and make available complete lecture materials to students; 4) audio and video integration; 5) more collaborative team work; and 6) eventually, a paper-less classroom. In addition, the tablet PC is a natural start to the development of on-line courses. Student surveys indicated a very high satisfaction with the use of the tablet PC.
