Teaching and Learning with iPads - Guides for Instructors

First Year Groupwork document

Leicester Medical School is the first UK medical school to adopt a one-iPad-per-student programme at the undergraduate level. Every first-year student receives an iPad for her learning as soon as she arrives to Leicester Medical School. Students are expected to bring their iPads to every class session in order to take notes, capture online resources, collaborate with other students, and watch and listen to multimedia learning materials.
