This had to happen, students at the University of Notre Dame favored iPads over textbooks as an e-reader. A recent research also revealed that the students enjoyed studying using their new gadgets. The research provided forty project management students with iPads on a yearlong loan for the eReader project.
The research said almost all the students said that the iPad encouraged them to explore additional course topics and increased their learning and also helped the course be more interesting.
The students were offered the iPads with no instruction on how to use them so researchers can get accurate facts based on its free-will usage. The only negative comment was that students reported frustration at the clumsy highlighting tool and note-taking functions.
