It's been a few weeks since we offered our First Look at iPad for eLearning.
Now that the iPad has been successfully launched it's probably an appropriate time to revisit it as a tool for education in either a live classroom setting, a blended program or a fully online eLearning program.
Clearly the iPad has captured people's imagination much more than any previous tablet. The form factor, hi quality multi touch screen, build quality and the temptation of over 100,000 apps in the app store have tapped a market, hungry for a easily readable, relatively lightweight device that lets one surf the net, email, work on documents, view and play videos and the numerous other functions the device is capable of. Admittedly, all of this is available on Blackberries, iPhones and other smart phones, but their physical screen size limitations simply make them not practical for many as a primary device for some of the above functions.
