Meet the tablet PC.

The tablet PC offers exciting new possibilities for your presentations, whether in a lecture hall or a small group. By simply drawing onscreen with the attached pen, you can mark up any slide from any presentation.

Unlike a laser pointer, the tablet produces marks that remain on the slide while you talk. This feature allows you to seamlessly draw pathways, mark up parts of an image, or highlight important points. Moreover, if you return to an earlier slide, all of your annotations will still be there.

When we polled first-year medical students, over ninety-five percent of them said that following lectures was easier when professors used tablet PCs instead of laser pointers.

If you want to use a tablet PC in a lecture, or if if you'd simply like to borrow a tablet for a few days to see how it works, contact Pat Molholt (molholt@columbia.edu 5 - 3688).
