The preliminary results of integrating mobile tablet-PC technology and supporting classroom management software (CMS) in undergraduate electronic engineering technology courses is discussed in this WIP paper. The use of NetSupport School CMS in conjunction with a tablet-PC, improves course delivery by centrally instructing students on their tablet-PCs, broadcast the dynamic screen contents along with digital ink annotations in real-time, maintain student attention by monitoring student activities and Web usage, and save time by quickly polling the class and showing responses instantly. The students can share their class work instantly with other students or the instructor. The instantaneous sharing of work in real-time improves collaboration between students and faculty and adds new dimensions to the learning environment in the classroom. The initial results show a significant improvement in studentspsila class performance and learning experience. The technology integration, redesigned course, pedagogical approach, student experiences, and results are discussed in this WIP paper.
