Thank you for your responses so far. I knew I should have had that second
cup of coffee before posting my question (to be sure to be more specific in
my inquiry).  Student success and the expected outcomes of the course are
paramount to any decision we make regarding any technology, pedagogy, and
curriculum design. The purpose of the question was to determine if anyone
else had used this technology yet, for what purpose, and if the
implementation of the iPad enhanced instruction/delivery, engaged students
in a more meaningful way, or improved response and enhancement to current
course work.

Funds are not available for the iPad; this would be provided to our
university as a way to pilot the use. Students in developmental courses,
historically at our university, generally need instruction and guidance
using any technology.
