Summary (2)

I enjoy the new remote CART as it is easy for me to bring into class and relatively easy to set up… Additionally, the use of the

iPad

itself instead of a laptop creates a smaller footprint and can be easier to use in class in conjunction with taking notes, as well as eliminating excess attention drawn to my desk
