Developed with education in mind, the iPad and its apps, such as iTunes U, provide students with a portable multimedia library. In iBooks, students can access an interactive dictionary or flip through textbooks, photo galleries and 3D images via touchscreen. Thousands of additional educational apps can be downloaded and used in the classroom and be used to communicate with a school’s community.

Reader Testimony: 
“The iPad is so easy to travel with and makes email easily accessible when on the road. But the real top benefit for me is that I have a photo campus tour installed on the iPad that allows me to share all the new buildings and pictures of students with alumni and friends, no matter where I travel. They love being able to hold the iPad in their hands to see what is happening on our campus.” —Linda Schaub, executive director of development, Spring Arbor University, Mich.
