Abstract

It has been common practice for years to view the use of learning resources as an essential part of teaching and learning processes .The entrance of touch based devices into the consumer market is bringing about new opportunities for utilizing the highly interactive and mobile digital resources in education. Open and Distance Learning often require learners to be actively engaged with learning resources, however, not many studies have focused on single-touch and multi-touch devices as tools for engaging learners. This paper explores new innovative approaches of using tablet type devices to support assessment and feedback processes. It also discusses the potentials benefits of using the tools for collaborative learning interactions. Touch computing provides an intuitive and liberating way of interacting with digital content in a way that breaks down traditional barriers to technology so that students can work in a more intuitive, engaging and efficient manner. // Paper ID: 173
