Assignments Made Easy by Tablet PCs

October 15th, 2009 by Carol L. Smith

Contributed by Emily Riggs, ITAP Communication Consultant

This is the second year that a Hewlett-Packard Tablet PC has been available as an option in DePauw’s student laptop program, and nearly 90 First-Year students purchased one this fall. Those students and the sophomores who bought a Tablet PC last year are finding an assortment of programs and functions that they can utilize for the writable screen on their laptops.

Tablet PCs are valuable tools for all majors and departments at DePauw in a variety of ways. For example, with the program PDF Annotator you can use the pen to highlight key quotes and take written notes in the margins of a PDF article right on the screen. With note-taking software such as DyKnow and OneNote handwritten notes can be easily accessed through handwriting recognition technology and converted into text for easier reading. Despite a student’s major or interest, the Tablet PC can make any reading, writing, or lab assignment easier through the writable screen.

To view the impact Tablet PCs have in classrooms at DePauw University, take a look at the following clip: Teaching with Tablets. For more information about the Tablet PCs log onto: http://www.depauw.edu/univ/fits/TabletPCs/index.asp.

To show students some useful tips and suggestions of what you can do with a Tablet, Michael Gough, Instructional Technologist and Coordinator of Student Technology Support, recently led a workshop on Tablet PCs.  Topics he addressed included functions of the pen tool in software such as OneNote, DyKnow, Windows Journal, PDF Annotator, and MS Office Word documents and presentations. This first workshop was a basic tutorial of the variety of functions and programs of Tablet PCs. Depending upon interest, Gough can schedule more workshops in the future that will focus on more advanced techniques and specific programs.

If you are interested in a workshop, but do not yet own a Tablet PC, do not fear. A few Tablet PCs are available for participants to use during a workshop. For more information about Tablet PCs or future workshops, contact Michael Gough at michaelgough@depauw.edu. If you are interested in purchasing a Tablet PC through the DePauw laptop program, you can find that information on the DePauw Laptop website.
