This paper discusses the effect of using tablet PCs in e-learning. We carried out an analysis based on the “dual channel model,” which models the information-processing capabilities of humans. More specifically, we provided learners with paper media, keyboards, pen tablets, and tablet PCs to be used as input devices for annotations during e-learning, measured the gaze point of each learner using an eye-mark recorder, and analyzed the performance of each device by performing memory and comprehension tests, using questionnaires, and evaluating the note-taking activity. As a result, we found that the use of tablet PCs in e-learning (1) reduces the extraneous cognitive load imposed by making annotations, (2) makes it easier to gaze at the content in synchronization with the narration, (3) increases learners’ comprehension and memory retention abilities, and (4) enables efficient note taking, thus increasing the accuracy of the notes as learning aids.
