The College of Nursing
When students in the classroom all have access to the same device, it creates more opportunities for creative, hands-on learning. Beginning with an iPad pilot in the College of Nursing, the University of Massachusetts Amherst is exploring the use of iPads and other devices as tools that will give students a more active classroom experience, and more opportunities for deeper learning.
In Spring 2016 faculty from the College of Nursing piloted e-exams, which were securely deployed on iPads using ExamSoft. The response to this format was overwhelmingly positive, and we will be expanding this pilot in Fall 2016.

The College of Nursing’s iTunes U Course on formative assessment is also considered a key resource for similar programs nationwide.
