Combining a Tablet personal computer and screencasting for chemistry teaching

Patrick J O’Malley


This article describes innovative use of a Tablet PC and screencasting in delivering chemistry lectures. Introducing such technological innovations as an aid to chemistry lecturing is shown to be of immense benefit to both lecturer and student alike. The Tablet PC provides a clear method of presenting technical information in a dynamic fashion catering to both lecturer and student needs. It also permits archiving of lectures „as delivered‟ to be achieved. Screencasting allows easy recording of the entire lecture and archiving for future viewing by the students. Student reaction to such innovations is universally extremely positive and the widespread adoption of these practices is to be encouraged.
