iPads @BCC

To provide faculty who are interested in exploring the instructional uses of the iPad in their course, Title III has purchased a number of the mobile devices (1st and 2nd generation iPads). The iPads are pre-loaded with a variety of apps purchased through the grant to meet the needs of both specific gateway courses (for instance astronomy apps for AST 111) and for general use (word processing, presentation, cloud storage). There are three sets of iPads available for classroom use.

  • iPad 2 – (6) for faculty use to create course content or as a presentation tool
  • iPad 2 – (30) student class set for in-class use only as part of a lesson (only available for the Fall River campus during daytime class hours
  • iPad 1 – (30) student class set or faculty use – earmakred for long-term student use in a learning community

For those interested in checking out an iPad, please contact Kevin Forgard (kevin.forgard@bristolcc.edu) to discuss your classroom needs and plans for instructional activities.
