In writing classes, some peer critiquing of writing samples, which traditionally occurs in limited class time, can occur outside of class on the web site, resulting in greater participation in the process.
Textbooks are increasingly bundled with CD-ROMS containing valuable auxiliary material. Instructors in laptop courses can fully utilize these materials since they are readily accessible to all students in the class. This would not be the case in a traditional class where students owning a computer have a considerable advantage over those who do not.
Students can be taught the IT (Information Technology) skills appropriate to their discipline - data analysis, mathematical modeling, spreadsheets, presentation software - and required to use them routinely.
Instructors can use the technology to approach difficult subjects in new ways: chemistry students can rotate images of complex molecules to view them from several perspectives; astronomy students can view the night sky as seen from any point on earth, observe the motions of the planets, the phases of the moon and bring up full color images\of deep sky objects.
