Reaching students in large classes with a tablet PC

Connel Fullenkamp (Economics) teaches ECON 51D, “Economic Principles,” a very large class held in Griffith Theater in the Bryan Center.  He uses a tablet PC so that he can sketch and create notes while he is lecturing.  By creating lecture notes dynamically, he is able to quickly respond to student concerns and be interactive. After his lecture, students can download the notes as PDF documents from the Blackboard course site. In addition, both the notes and his lecture are saved using DukeCapture lecture capture system, which produces both streaming and downloadable files with audio and video for his students to review.  Students can select the media that best suits their needs.
