Teaching with laptop computers (or laptops) is a new phenomenon in educational institutions. A review of the literature shows that laptops are being used as a learning tool from the perspective of how learners use laptops rather than how a trainer uses a laptop as a teaching presentation medium. This research project is the first phenomenological case study on teaching with a laptop from a trainer's perspective; this offers new implications of teaching with laptops and attempts to understand the teaching and learning process when using laptops.
