Another iPad Initiative…Why is this news?

Another institution of higher education is rolling out an iPad initiative.  Why is this news?  Frankly, it might be in the apps and not so much the device.  http://campustechnology.com/articles/2012/02/08/moore-college-to-distribute-ipads-to-new-bfa-students.aspx  Moore College, a Pennsylvania arts college, plans to distribute iPads to bachelor of fine arts students in the Fall.  So, how is this different from other iPad roll outs?  Moore College plans to use special drawing and design apps to help students learn about fine arts and prepare them for technology in their industry.  Exactly how is this going to work?  They don’t specify anything yet, so stay tuned to see if drawing and design on the iPad will actually work for students.
