As a result of Government initiatives implemented to broaden student engagement in learning, universities are striving to increase their mature-aged and low socio-economic numbers. As these students are often the most susceptible to attrition, providing the necessary guidance and support is essential. With many students from this demographic studying externally it is becoming increasingly important to innovatively engage them. Through the use of Tablet PCs, comprehensive Electronic Study Guides have been created that are able to effectively guide and support students completing bridging mathematics courses.
