10 October – Hello again after marking interlude

Seems the reality is that there are no funds this year for ipads (but hope for next year it seems). The good news is that we now have our first ipad installed in studio WE 504 {thanks Brian for ingenious and cheap alternate to expensive ipad enclosures).

I have installed some of my apps on the studio iPad so HCC1 and GDS1 students can explore the range, and see how they function in terms of a touch-screen experience. If  logged in wirelessly via uni-surf, files can be uploaded to check out how epubs/interactive pdfs look on an ipad.

In the semester break we have had installed on the lab computers the free Adobe Digital Editions app [this is what you should download on your own computers as it is what you can read library e-books on  http://www.adobe.com/products/digital-editions/download.htm] and the other great free reader we have put on your computers is the Sony Reader app which is designed to read a very wide range of e-book formats.

You can upload your own files and create your own library. [http://ebookstore.sony.com/download/]

Our ipad installed in studio for student use. Thanks Brian for ingenious instant enclosure.
