Microsoft Donates 30 Tablet PCs To Harvard Teaching Fellows

dell_latitude_xt Teaching fellows at Harvard are now getting some first hand experience on how Tablet PCs can improve classroom duties.  30 Dell Latitude XT Tablet PCs were delivered last week for them and the initial response looks positive.  Here are a couple of comments from the article:

“Our students submit PDFs of code and we can write comments on it,” said Peter H. Lifland ’10, one of the almost 30 TFs for the course. “It makes the grading process a lot faster.

“It’s like when an English professor highlights or marks stuff,” said Kenneth A. Parreno ’11, another TF. “It helps us give a lot of feedback in a faster, more efficient way.”
