University Class to Get Wired With iPhones and iPod Touches

Imagine walking into your first class at a university and your teacher hands you an iPhone or iPod Touch — not a shabby first day right?! For the 900 incoming freshmen students at Abilene Christian University in Abilene, TX, this will soon be their reality.

By being equipped with devices that connect to wireless networks and the Internet, the university is hoping that students will put their new Apple products to good use for various services on campus. I guess this paired with the fact that there is now software specially designed for viewing lecture slides on media players, students are definitely stepping up with the times!

I wonder if they factor the cost of that into tuition? It's already high enough these days...what will a couple extra grand do?

i'm pretty sure that if i had my ipod touch when i was in school with free wifi and encouragement to use it, i would NOT be paying attention to the teacher at all.
