The University of Patras HCI Group received a grant, that included a number of touchscreen HP laptops, in the frame of the project HP Innovation in Education, In the frame of this project, a new lab activity has been designed around these laptops (HP EliteBook) in October 2009. The new lab activity involves experimentation by students of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department with Fitts's law (prediction of pointing and tunel steering tasks) using four alternative pointing devices of the laptoop (mouse, pen, joystick, touch pad). This activity involves an individual and a collaborative phase spanning two weeks. A report on this new experience is in preparation.
