    The ONLY reason keeping me away from an iPad is the lack of coursecompass support.

    Well at least I think it wont work as coursecompass is ran with flash.

    Anyone know if there is an app specifically for coursecompass on the iPad?

    I would LOVE to do homework on the iPad via coursecompass and read ebooks but I think their all using flash..

    Do I need to install any special software or plug-ins?
    Some courses offer videos, animations, and other multimedia to help you learn. To use this multimedia material, you may need to download and install additional software (for example, QuickTime). You can open your course to see what kind of additional software it requires, if any. Note that some software may not work in all browsers.

    Depending on your course, you may be prompted to install:
    The player window that you use to answer questions online, such as the MathXL Player, the MyEconLab Player, and so on.
    Adobe® Flash™ - Needed to run the player window in most courses and to view some tutorial videos.
    Adobe® Reader® - Needed to view online CourseCompass guides and other PDF documents.
    Adobe Shockwave® - Needed to view animations in some courses.
    Apple® QuickTime® - Needed to view the tutorial videos and animations that accompany your course, or hear audio files in any of 30 audio, video, and image formats, including Flash.
    Java™ plug-in - Needed to view the Virtual Classroom and Chat sessions in CourseCompass.
    RealNetworks® RealPlayer™ - Needed to watch streamed media animations in some courses.
    TestGen Player plug-in - Needed to view and take online TestGen tests in CourseCompass.

    stick to the macbooks..

    I've already found that page weeks ago even before the iPad was released.

    But it still doesnt answer my question. I know flash is used for the online courses (doing study guides and homework and they are all utilizing flash) but I was wondering if there was a specific app built or in progress of being built for the iPad from coursecompass.

    So far the iPad cant utilize, what a shame as it would be perfect to use for courses.

    I think I'll just stick with my 17" i7 mbp that also gets 10+ hours of battery life. :)
