Using a Tablet PC to facilitate the engagement and success of students
Never has higher education been more important. As a result of Government initiatives implemented to increase student engagement in learning, universities are striving to increase their mature-aged and low socio-economic student numbers. As these students are often the most vulnerable to dropping out, it is vital that they are provided with the necessary guidance and support required for a successful learning journey. The Mathematics Learning Centre (MLC) at CQUniversity Australia is utilising technology to not only enhance the delivery of bridging mathematics courses but to also provide the necessary support for students once they enter their undergraduate degrees. The Tablet PC is being used to create instructional videos to support and engage external (distance) bridging mathematics students; and to create short videos to help external undergraduate students with the mathematical content in their courses.
