iPad for eLearning


I have read several articles about iPad for eLearning and I believe that we are missing the point. Why iPad was created? iPad was not created for supporting eLearning and (or) mLearning instead it was created as a media device that supports books, magazines, newspapers, games, music, video and web access. So the question is, why all the professionals involved in the e-Learning industry care about the use of iPad for eLearning?

Is the iPad Driving eLearning Towards HTML5?

Upside Learning

The battle between web technologies (read ‘ Apple and Adobe ‘) started a couple of years back when Apple decided to not support Flash on its newly launched iPad terming it buggy. The eLearning industry was not too happy about the iPad not featuring Flash as it meant reinventing the wheel for animation and interactivity in eLearning. The fact is the iPad has taken a significant lead in the tablets market.

Apple iPad Disappoints eLearning Industry

Upside Learning

I was looking forward to the Apple iPad even more so as we have been doing good stuff on mobile learning and putting up applications and tools on iPhone as pilots and on a trial basis. The iPad was supposed to be better and bigger than the iPhone, closer to a computer and much more than just a phone. However, from whatever I have been able to gather about it so far, including Apple’s own website I think the iPad is a big miss. What would I carry an iPad for?

Seven Ways to Use the iPad for Workplace Learning

Upside Learning

The iPad is here. Here at Upside our camp is divided, there are iPad lovers and there are iPad baiters. So given that I’m not a lover or baiter of Apple, I’m trying to take an objective view of what the iPad might be able to do for workplace learning. Some or all of these may seem evident, it remains to be seen how successful the iPad will be, and how it will actually end up being used in the workplace.

Very Impressed with the work TechSmith (i.e. Camtasia) is doing on iPad

mLearning Revolution

Something else I have been thinking and blogging about recently is that we are getting closer to a time when we will think ‘mobile-first ’ when developing content, but then I thought why not start thinking about developing right on Tablets, such as the iPad. Since my focus is on vendors who develop eLearning tools, almost every day I’m going to the Apple App store on my iPad looking for apps from these companies. Think Camtasia or Captivate but right on the iPad.

Things to Remember When Designing Courses for iPads

Origin Learning

If you look at iPads in particular in the US alone, an estimated 85 million people will be using the tablet by 2016. For the same reason that you might prefer to play a strategy based game on an iPad instead of a smartphone, an employee might like to view a presentation on an iPad too. Plus if you have a lot of iPad users in your organization, you have reason all the more. What is it in the iPad screen that makes it much better than others?

The (Initial) iPad Experience

Clark Quinn

So, when I heard about the iPad, I wasn’t one of those who signed up in advance. The iPad, however, was announced as coming with (or having available) software for word processing (Pages), diagramming (OmniGraffle), presentations (Keynote), and email (Mail). I checked it out, and a guy told me that they’d been handing out tickets for the iPad, and they seemed to have plenty. And lo and behold, they had stacks of iPads.

iPads do make sense for schools

Clark Quinn

However, his recent post against iPads in the classroom seemed to me to miss a couple of points. However, my colleague Scott Marvel has filmed lots of kids with iPads and he tells me they don’t have much trouble using the touchscreen (they’re not highly capable with regular keyboards at young ages), they use speech to text as well, and also take freehand notes too. So writing isn’t horribly impeded on iPads for younger kids.

iPads and the word eLearning

Moodle Journal

While our work here at the college continues with the iPad trials, I am always interested to read and discover from the work of others in using tablet technology. Not so much with regard to the use of tablets as really this is more directly the evolutionary transition of anyone’s tech experience, but more by way of how they could be utilised in improving outcomes in a way that cannot be readily achieved using the now more traditional desktop technology.

Study Finds Benefits in Use of iPad as an Educational Tool


The study looks at the use of iPads at the Longfield Academy , where a large scale 1 to 1 iPad program was implemented last year. Over 800 students (the vast majority of students at the Academy) had or were issued iPads, across the full spectrum of grade levels (although not everyone had one, apparently a small percentage of students used other devices). 73% of students and 67% of staff felt that the iPad helped students improve the quality of their work.
