CIT’s director, Lynne O’Brien, talked to the Duke Chronicle about the the future of the iPad in teaching at Duke:
O’Brien said Duke’s faculty will make the final judgment regarding the iPad’s educational and technical value. Members of the faculty can approach CIT with a research question and a plan to use the iPad in the classroom. If CIT approves the professor’s proposal, students will be provided with iPads to use in the course. After a semester, the professor must provide an evaluation of the device.
