BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Lynn University is among those schools leading the way and sending a message to the publishers of overpriced, heavy, and often already-outdated textbooks. The school is set to provide all incoming freshman with an Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad Mini, loaded with core curriculum texts, apps, and even few classes already downloaded from iTunes.
While students will be charged $475 for the iPad, schools officials say — and most students would likely concur — that this is at least half of what text books cost for a freshman at a major institution.
“After two years of research and successful pilot programs,” said Lynn President Kevin M. Ross, “we are putting a transformational learning companion in our students' hands that will deliver our core curriculum in a rich environment, allowing students to engage with the content in interactive ways.”
