What are proper or improper uses of notebook computers in the classroom? Why? Is the use of a notebook computer more of a distraction than taking notes or doodling in a notebook pad during class?

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
