Free iPads Issued As Part of Local College Curriculum. Sign up for college, get an iPad. It’s part of the new curriculum at Moore College of Art & Design, the all-women school that has an enrollment of approximately 500 in Philadelphia. Students will receive the devices, customized by Apple and pre-loaded with visual arts- and design-related apps. Officials at Moore say their relationship with Apple Inc. is the first of its kind.
“On Monday you’re in the drawing studio, and on Wednesday you’re in the computer lab. That is one way to incorporate digital media tools,” said Dona Lantz, Moore’s dean of academic affairs. “But we saw the iPad as the mobile device that bridges the physical facility, both in ideas and being able to work with fluidity without having to go to a certain classroom in a certain building.”
