Jer found that he can get ebooks for his college classes for much less $$$ than hard copy. Will there be instructors that won't allow him to have his iPad in class, do you think?

I wouldn't imagine in this electronic culture/climate that it would be an issue. Most students will probably have laptops/netbooks. It's much more electronically focused than when I was in college. :eyes:

I'll weigh in, since I teach at a university. :) Your kids should check with their individual instructors and/or their syllabi, as each instructor is VERY different about their policies for the use of technology in the classroom. Also make sure that they will never use the book again in another class. I've seen students many times try to save money by renting or using an ebook, only to find out later they still need their own hard copy version in a later class. Hope this helps!
