Oklahoma State to pilot iPad this fall
Oklahoma State University is the latest to announce that it will pilot the iPad beginning this fall. According to an article from Campus Technology, the pilot will involve 125 students in journalism and marketing courses. The university hopes that the pilot will help them determine how the iPads academically enhance the courses, how the devices and specific apps can be integrated, and how the use of mobile tools can help students expand their tactical abilities.
