Dr. Heather Davis / Nathan Stevens EDP 370 iPAD Project


The iPAD will be used to collect data from the site you are assigned to. You will be able to access the class Moodle site to view course materials. The iPADs will be used for collaboration between students and for presentations. These iPADs are WiFi only. They have been preloaded with app that you will need for this course. The iPAD comes with a tote bag, bump case, power cord, and keyboard dock. The iPAD has been preloaded with five apps to be used in during the course. Please do not sync the iPAD to a computer. iTunes will remove the pre-loaded apps from your iPAD.

An iTunes account is needed to operate an iPAD. If you do not have an iTunes account, you will need to create one on the iPAD through the App store app or through http://www.apple.com/itunes/ . We would like the class to explore uses of apps outside of what is already installed on the iPAD. If you want to install apps to the ipad you can change the iTunes account username and password to your own and then buy apps. (If you purchased paid apps, you are responsible for paying for them.) Since the apps are under your username, they are yours if you ever purchase an Apple iDevice.
