Capturing dynamic presentation: Using technology to enhance the chalk and the talk
Despite rapid changes in the ways in which university courses are being delivered, lectures have remained a common feature of many courses. The lecture is problematic for many reasons, not the least being that it does not encourage interaction. The current project attempted to address this problem by implementing 'digital ink' into lecture sessions. The approach used in this study is innovative because the handwritten component of the content was written on top of content created in advance and presented in PDF form. The response from students was overwhelmingly positive. During the course of the implementation, a number of teething problems were encountered; suggestions for overcoming these problems and future enhancements are also discussed. Digital ink provides a potential avenue for increasing interaction in lecture sessions whilst not limiting the capacity for capturing all aspects of the session.
