“Students on the University of Leicester’s new distance learning MSc in security, conflict and international development face more challenges than the average distance learner. For example, some students might spend weeks with no access to an internet connection, working in a refugee camp in post-conflict countries. How does the university make sure these remote students have everything they needed to carry out their studies?”
Diana Petschauer‘s insight:
Excellent article: iPads and apps offering access to higher education, including those who study abroad in remote areas. Apps for the iPad that are phenomenal for college students include iAnnotate, ExplainEverything, Noteability, Notebook+, VoiceDream, EverNote, AudioNote, Typ-O HD, WolframAlpha, Readability, Dropbox, CloudOn, and CaseFiles by McGraw Hill.
