After almost a full semester of occupying the iPad, I don’t know how I am going to live without this thing. All my assignments and a majority of my internet browsing are done using the iPad.
Stony brook University uses a website called Blackboard to distribute assignments, post grades and weekly reminders, and have the students interact with one another. I navigate blackboard exclusively form my iPad. The layout is nicer. The design is nicer. Everything is nicer on the app end of Blackboard.
Web version of Blackboard
App version of Blackboard
The main difference between the two is the active panel the app version has. It is easy to navigate the different tabs as well as see exactly where you are.
