Students claim that enhanced communication is the most useful function for them afforded by their laptop. Among other uses, students constantly use email to communicate with each other and their teacher about academic issues. They also rely heavily on our online collaboration system (FirstClass) to access assignments, post their work, and pose questions and answers via the built in forums.

In addition, many students make use of multimedia tools within simple email to best express themselves. This includes changing fonts, including images, and even recording voice files for verbal expression.
