At the beginning of 2011, the University of Kentucky’s Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce began an 18-month trial to determine the value of using an iPad in their professional graduate education program. Support is being provided by Apple, app developers, media companies and hardware developers.
The University of Kentucky released a press release while the iPad 2 was being announced that it would be using the iPad 2 as well as the first generation iPad for this project.
The Patternson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce has a blog focused on this iPad usage trial at:
The blog already has a number of interesting entries about the project.
As a Tumblr fan, I was pleased and amused to note that this blog is powered by Tumblr – no doubt using Tumblr’s iOS app to create some of the entries.
