A number of recent articles on the web and in the popular press describe iPad initiatives at colleges and universities this fall. For example, Chris Foreman of Ars Technica tells how higher education will be testing the value of the iPad. He describes a variety of pilots and programs at Oklahoma State University, Illinois Institute of Technology, Seton Hill, George Fox, NC State, Reed College, University of Maryland and Duke. Links to more information for most of the projects are included in the article. Here are links for Oklahoma and IIT. Foreman also offers a brief review of Kindle pilots at seven universities last year.
