Abstract Traditional lecture/tutorial/laboratory format employed in many university courses, despite the best intentions of teaching staff, can place students as passive receivers of knowledge rather than active participants in the learning process. Wireless enabled tablet classrooms offer the opportunity to challenge the boundaries of traditional place-based instruction so that educational considerations rather than the physical infrastructure drive the teaching and learning process (Bleed, 2001). This paper reports the outcomes of restructuring the delivery of several courses taught by two IT lecturers using mobile tablet technology to create constructivist type learning environments. Not withstanding challenging technical problems in the first deployment, both students and staff were generally positive about the approach and willing to participate in future tablet classes.
