    I remember reading the original mentions of Abilene Christian University and their well-executed "Connected" video, that visualized the possibilities for students.

    Now, a recent New York Times article appears to be highlighting even MORE universities jumping onboard... with Apple keeping mum about how many others also might do the same.

    • University of Maryland
    • Oklahoma Christian University
    • Abilene Christian
    • Freed-Hardeman
    Not that all Professors like the idea. The article noted the following:
    This seemed to be of concern to the Abilene "Connected" video makers as well, as they suggested some solutions for having devices automatically "restrict" themselves (opt-in) when class has begun. It's still exciting though. Boy, makes me almost want to go back and enhance my education.

    I'm from Abilene so I know a LOT of people at ACU and I haven't heard much about this. The only thing I heard about the iPhone/ACU is that all the students were supposed to get iPhones (paid with by their tuition) but then ACU changed their minds and said 'no'.

    That is great. Lucky Kids didn't even have to wait in line on the 11th. Wonder how the plans work.
