Students use iPads in Art 434 Life Drawing Course

This spring the Office of the Provost provided funding for an iPad pilot project. Small classes that could demonstrate a unique way of impacting student learning were selected to use the iPads for the semester.  Department of Art faculty member, James Oliver's Life Drawing students were shocked to find out they would be receiving the iPad's to use for the semester.

" I was stunned that we would receive the opportunity to used them in an art class. My favorite reaction when we learned about it was from another student 'I must be dreaming'. The student then asked Jamie (James Oliver) to repeat the news."  - Carol Longman, student
