USM to issue tablets to students in Honors College

Posted in News by Reuben Drake on August 2nd, 2011

Today students have many more tools at their disposal for research and studying. For example Samsung will be offering 1,000 Galaxy Tab 10.1 units to 1,000 students at the University of South Mississippi. The tablets will be given to selected Honors College, McNair Scholars, Southern Style and Gulf Coast students, and the goal is to give students and educators mobile access to their courses, textbooks, grades and schedules.

It will be interesting to see if grades improve after they receive the tablets or if it just means more playing of Angry Birds.
