CDI College Part of Largest Post-Secondary iPad Initiative in North America

Monday, August 29, 2011

Students to experience interactive learning this fall

Vancouver, BC - August 29, 2011– This fall, new students at CDI College can cross textbook shopping off of their back-to-school lists. Starting September 1, 2011 approximately 1,000 incoming students will be part of the largest post-secondary initiative in North America to receive Apple iPads in the classroom as their primary learning tool. Over the next year more than 6,000 new students will be part of this iPad initiative.

"Our students will have an opportunity to take their post-secondary learning experience to a new level. The iPad holds each student’s textbooks, learning tools and assignment work in one portable device. No matter what program our students are enrolled in, ranging from business to healthcare to technology, they will find iPads in the classroom a more interactive and enriching experience," says Randy Cox, President of CDI College.

Weighing a mere 1.3 pounds, the iPad tablet will be preloaded with Pearson's eText for iPad platform, Pearson’s premier electronic textbook technology. Students can now view their eTextbooks in high resolution on the iPad, no longer having to carry heavy textbooks to school. The iPads have been designed with environmental and health benefits in mind for students, including a mercury-free LED-backlit display and an arsenic-free display glass. Studying and reading on the iPad also reduces the amount of paper used and money spent on printed textbooks over the course of an academic program.

The iPad features capabilities for taking notes, highlighting text, bookmarking pages, and conducting research through an Internet connection, changing the way students learn and interact in the classroom. The iPad touch screen is easy to use, with functions for zooming into text and images or flipping through pages by swiping your finger across the screen.

"As iPads make their way into the workforce as preferred devices over laptops and smart phones, our students will develop advanced skills in navigating the tablet programs and functions, giving them the knowledge and tools to excel in their future careers," says Dr. Bohdan Bilan, VP of Academics for CDI College.
