Abstract

This presentation describes a mobile computing initiative in an upper Midwest university. The campus wide project now in it's 4th year using high-end portable computers capable of digital inking and voice activated texting, involved all facets of the university community and represented new challenges for integration. This presentation discusses and demonstrates the technology tools and the criteria used to select a specific form factor. It describes the social, institutional, and instructional adaptations students and instructors have had to make to accommodate the technology. Using the "Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT)" recently developed by leading researchers in the technology acceptance field. The study evaluates students' acceptance of Tablet PC (TPC) as a mean to forecast, explain, and improve integration of computers in technologically immersed contexts.
