Project Numina II

  • Internal seed grant obtained to study the use of the Pocket PC in higher education.

  • Is it possible to do serious college-level work on a Pocket PC?

  • What additional hardware and software are needed to make the PPC a viable option for students and faculty?


Project Numina II

  • In the next 18 months, we anticipate that nearly all UNCW students will own some sort of PDA. Our goal is to determine how to use this technology to further our educational efforts.


Features of the Pocket PC Platform

  • Detachable Keyboard

  • Small Size & Weight (6 oz.)

  • Reflective TFT LCD Display

  • Expandability – CF+ Slot

  • MS Pocket PC 2002 OS


SWATT: A Student Response System

  • Web-based student response system requiring only a Web browser.

  • Student responses are anonymous

  • Data are stored in a database for immediate or delayed review.


What is the half-life of the following first-order reaction?

a) 2 s b) 10 s

c) 5 s d) 20 s
