During three offerings of the course Introduction to Statistics at DTU the lecturing was carried out 100% through a tablet computer combined with the web conferencing facility Adobe Connect as an aid to record and share the lectures as well simultaneously as for creating videos for subsequent viewing. It will be described exactly how this can be done using simple audio and video equipment. A quantitative and qualitative analysis of the course evaluations are given to document how (positive) students reacted on the initiative. In June 2011 the experience from a fourth offering during the spring 2011 is included.
