Tablet pilot this semester (or year?)
– gave faculty choice of device, 20+ chose iPad, 3 Pc tablet
– first faculty member (statistics): used with lecture captureannotating screen worked well, quite a few challenges (classroom design, switching between devices, stylus not fine enough for everything, popups & log outs.)
– second faculty member (art history on site in Italy); used iPad to show images (eg church blueprint) while inside building, easier thanphotocopies. Apps, hard to find academic content, some good stuff from museums, Virtual History Roma (from publishing house), interactive 3d model of Rome, eTextbook.
– 3rd faculty member (history), working with rare books. Student take iPad to library to take images based on a task, use MediaKron to display & work with images. Didn’t work. Big maps, would be better to ask librarian to scan. Getting images off iPad was awkward.
