"Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota moves into the vanguard of online and mobile learning by incorporating the iPad into its online graduate programs in Project Management, Organizational Leadership, and Human Resource Management in May. Staff and faculty who have developed the project will present their innovative approach at the Campus Technology Forum, which takes place April 30 through May 2 in Long Beach, CA.
Each student will receive an iPad preloaded with programs and resources and will use it to access the online learning environment, electronic resources, content-creation tools, and student services. But rather than functioning as a static device for receiving information, the iPad is deeply integrated into the curriculum of the programs, incorporating both native applications and specially designed learning activities that will enable and enhance student-to-student, student-to-instructor, and student-to-content interaction..."

Events such as these will become more common in coming years. According to a Forrester Research survey of IT decision makers, 93% expected their administrative professionals and knowledge workers to consume or create content on tablets by 2013. No matter whether those devices are purchased by IT or the workers themselves, that’s a lot of tablets showing up in the workforce.
But why are they buying, and what are they hoping to get for their money? In the case of the Financial Times, it looks like they were fishing for style. Their CEO acknowledged that the subsidy was essentially a bonus - a “recognition of your contribution to our strong performance this year.” For most businesses, the primary benefit appears to be portability, which explains the tablet’s appeal to education, sales and other mobile-minded groups.
