Boise State University has actively explored integration of mobile devices and eContent into the student educational experience. From fall 2010 through summer 2012, classes of social work and nursing students were provided devices (iPads or netbooks) and eResources supporting their curriculum and/or academic discipline. Each semester’s research project included rigorous assessment of student participants. This presentation will focus on research findings from pre- and post- student surveys and student focus groups. Students were asked to assess best uses of devices and eBooks as well as potential limitations.
