Should Students Use Their Private Laptop Computers for Study Purposes?

Abstract : Project and Problem Based Learning has become a standard method of teaching at Technikum Wien. In the course of Computer Science students used their own Laptop Computers for all lessons. If students could not afford a laptop, one was provided by the department. The over all results of this experiment have been very promising. It was possible to reduce the total costs of teaching, mainly because less support for the student laptops was needed. Even more important, most teaching obstacles previously caused by hardware/software problems disappeared completely. The majority of computer science students say, they prefer to use their own laptop and that it is very motivating to have all necessary prerequisites for the course on one computer system.
