Since Apple Computer has introduced the iPad, there has been a lot of commotion in the area of education. Not only has a lot of studies been done in K-12, but also in higher education. Many colleges had distributed iPads to students in the classroom in order to assess all the possibilities of this new product, thinking in line of a new trend that is going to change the way we read, the way we teach and the way we learn.

In 2010 the CIT led a study on the original iPad and its potential uses in education with the emphasis on the iPad in the hands of the faculty. The study ran for 6 months with 40 participants, ending in December 2010. Check out the wiki documenting the goals of the study and the contributions of the participants.
