The use of mobile devices and applications for teaching and learning in higher education is an area of significant and rapid growth, as are collaborative applications & cloud-based computing (Horizon Report, 2012, 2011, 2010). TTS Educational and Scholarly Serviced group (ESTS) is working on a set of initiatives designed to partner with the Tufts community in this fast-moving arena. An important component of this is the Tufts iPad for Education Pilot. The goal of this pilot is to leverage iPads to promote active learning and student engagement in Tufts classes.
