iPad Cart Pilot

During summer 2013, ITS’  Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) ran a small pre-pilot to explore the use of iPads for teaching and learning and to test the workflow for using an iPad cart to manage loaner iPads.

In fall 2013, TEL provided a small group of faculty access to iPads for use in mobile projects. A brief application process required instructors to describe the way(s) in which they plan to use iPads in their courses. The Center for Scholarly Technology evaluated submissions and then consulted with selected faculty to discuss their proposals. Ideas for mLearning assignments and activities can be found on the mLearning site.
