Using Tablet Technology for University Lectures

Bioscience Education Volume 12, ISSN 1479-7860


Tablet PCs provide numerous benefits over traditional electronically projected lectures that use software such as PowerPoint. Flexibility and spontaneity can be achieved by editing or creating notes in real-time. The input pen or stylus is a very useful tool, especially for courses that involve the extensive use of equations or mathematical solutions. Awareness of the availability of additional software programs can enhance the efficacy and enjoyment of Tablet PCs for both the instructor and the students. (Contains 2 figures.)
