College of Engineering at Virginia Tech
The College of Engineering at Virginia Tech is the first and largest public college of engineering to require all 1,400 incoming freshman to purchase tablet PCs. The recommended tablet is the Fujitsu LifeBook T4000 Series convertible tablet used by students for tasks including taking class notes, collaborating on group sketches and sharing diagrams and notes with individual mark-ups. Instructors use tablet PCs to make their lectures more interactive and encourage participation in the classroom.
"We selected the Fujitsu LifeBook® Tablet PC based on its reliability and flexibility, and Fujitsu's years of corporate experience with Tablet PCs. Fujitsu Tablet PCs also provided the best balance of price, weight, service and screen size." (Glenda Scales, Associate Dean for Distance Learning and Computing, College of Engineering at Virginia Tech)

St. Andrew's College
St. Andrew's College needed a versatile tablet personal computer that could support a dynamic classroom environment where technology is fully integrated into the curriculum. To realize this vision, the school needed to equip students with a personal computer that could meet all the demands of a multi-faceted learning environment. The evaluation team found this machine in the Fujitsu LifeBook® T5010 Tablet PC. Last fall, the school purchased over 700 LifeBooks for of all of their students and faculty, and the clear consensus is that the vision has now been realized.
The most significant result of the completed vision is an interactive learning environment that keeps students engaged in the subject matter. "This makes it fun for kids," says Kim Sillcox, SAC's Director of Communications. "We want our students to enjoy learning and should do whatever it takes to capture their interest and imagination. This makes it more exciting, more visual—I think that speaks volumes."
