VSU Applications of Tablet PC in Engineering
One Year Ago All classes in our engineering graphics for design course were taught inside and students/faculty were confined to the traditional classroom/laboratory with desk-top computers and traditional note-taking/sketching on paper.

Today - In engineering graphics for design course teams of students can work on collaborative field projects to perform measurements, sketching, CAD drawing and design/modifications in field using their Tablet PCs. Because of opportunity for interaction and active participation of students in real-world experiments, they have shown more interest in learning the fundamentals of problem-solving techniques.

One Year From Now We expect to obtain positive results (higher grades, rate of retention, and course evaluation) from our statistical comparison of teaching/learning methods with or without Tablet PCs and will employ the HP mobile technology in more engineering and physics courses.
