iPhone wielding College kids from Texas Univ. get a better proposition

by radhika

To be in the good books of your teachers you don’t just need good brains and etiquettes only, you need an iPhone too! According to a part of the Texas University’s pilot mobile learning project, students who have an iPhone are encouraged to use it in class to Google search for words, notes and topics. The students were given a choice of a new Apple iPhone 3G or the iPod Touch, plus a package of ACU-written Web applications to use on them. ACU paid for the hardware, student (or their parents) selected and paid for their monthly AT&T service plan. The classes a student is enrolled in, where they are, the professor’s name, and the 3-D map of the campus were the most used apps.
