Looks like I will have a chance to play with the iPad.

I saw a short blurb about BlackBoard’s Mobile Learning app, and started asking around about whether or not we will support it here at Grinnell.

Sounds like the jury is still out on the question – mostly because of decisions made at Apple on Flash and Java support (or lack thereof) on iPad and iPhone platforms.  Which certainly limits the use of these devices and frustrates those of us who try to develop cool, “run everywhere” programs and documents.

Still, you never know what work arounds work until you try them.  So, wish me luck as I take one for the team.  I promise to keep you all posted on the pros and cons.  Right after I watch the next episode of Dr. Who read the NY Times out on the park bench!!
