Wireless Tablet PCs for enhanced teaching at an Australian regional universityteaching both campus and distance modesAbstract: This paper examines the concept of using Tablet PCs as a potential effectivelearning and teaching (L&T) enhancement tool in classroom environments. It reports onfindings and recommendations of a faculty sponsored L&T enhancement project in theFaculty of Engineering and Surveying at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ),which aims to investigate the role of wireless enabled Tablet PCs as a L&T enhancement tooland its impact on student’s retention and progression. The project has identified scenarios ofusing Table PCs by educators in classroom settings. These include using Tablet PC as apresentation medium with hand-drawing functionality, an electronic assignment marker, alecture recording tool, and a wireless video projector. Pedagogical aspects of wireless tabletPCs are widely explored in this paper. It is argued that the use of tablet PCs as a teaching toolhelps improve parity between on-campus and external students, improve interactivitybetween teachers and students, illustration of concepts, and turnaround of markingassignments.
