A recent trial of iPads by the Oklahoma State University has delivered some extremely positive results for the Apple tablet. The trial, which took place in the fall of 2010 showed an increase in pace of the course, reaching traditional benchmarks sometimes weeks in advance.
Each class was given the opportunity to use the iPad how they wished but focus was always on specific measurable outcomes. These included expense impact, viability as an E-reader and overall enhancement to a student’s academic experience. After the trial, it was recommended that the university consider full deployment of iPads for all students.
