Abstract

In the Spring semester of 2000, the College of Education at the University of Illinois sought to alleviate the lack of available class-time in a standard computer lab by implementing a laptop computer lab that could be transported throughout the building and connected to the World Wide Web via a wireless network connection. This paper reports on the usefulness of such a system in a higher education classroom and on the support aspects necessary to implement such a system and control for user needs. Views by our learners from a one-semester course in advanced statistics reveal that a wireless computer lab is effective in providing students with motivation, mobility, and learning while providing the instructor with increased pedagogical choices.
