iPad for eLearning

I have read several articles about iPad for eLearning and I believe that we are missing the point. Why was the iPad created? iPad was not created for supporting eLearning and (or) mLearning instead it was created as a media device that supports books, magazines, newspapers, games, music, video and web access.

So the question is, why do all the professionals involved in the e-Learning industry care about the use of iPad for eLearning?

The answer is simple. Because, learning with iPad is actually a reality but not with the same processes that we used to develop eLearning courses.

Asynchronous eLearning
I read all the time “iPad is not supporting Flash”. Come on guys. Do you really believe that we cannot create an eLearning course without Flash? Maybe some organizations wish about that. But guess. Yes we can! As the demand for eLearning courses developed for iPad increases you should be sure that the major organizations in the eLearning industry will find a solution such as eFront (LMS) and Lectora (Authoring Tool).

Synchronous eLearning
iPad is not have an integrated camera but it supports video calls with FaceTime video calling. As you can understand it has a microphone and speakers that can be used with Skype and Google Voice. You should be sure that organizations involved in the eLearning industry will develop applications for videoconference specific for iPad. The first company that will develop an application like that will dominate the eLearning market for iPad.
