The purpose of this Microsoft funded study was to investigate the effects of tablet PC usage on learning effectiveness and learning outcomes. Data were collected from undergraduate students enrolled in courses at the colleges of business, education and nursing. Tablets were used in the classroom by faculty in the presentation of new software that encouraged active classroom learning and the introduction of new software for student group work creating interactive multimedia applications for health education in community settings. The interest in the tablet PC technology was prompted by the fact that tablet PCs have recently attracted attention as a potential tool for educational use and in the health care arena. The results of the study demonstrated that collaborative learning resulted in considerable satisfaction among students and the sustainability of their community-based efforts in health teaching through the creation of modules.
