I hope this is the right forum to ask this question. I am both a parent of a high school student and a school board member of a school that has begun the migration from NetClassroom to Moodle and while most parents are very excited about the positive impact this will have on students, there is a lot of concern in regards to the student devices and the resulting costs. Our school is currently requiring the use of an iPad.
Is iPad the single supported platform? Or, is it a preferred platform?
As it pertains to Moodle, is there any reason why students couldn't make use of other tablet devices (ie. Android tablets such as the Amazon Kindle, Samsung Galaxy, Google Nexus, etc.) or perhaps a laptop (Windows or Apple)?
Parents are asking for choice & are concerned about the costs of the iPad - I'm trying to determine if in fact we would be making any kind of compromise by allowing platforms other than the iPad for use with Moodle.
Moving to the "Teaching strategies" forum from "Hardware and perormance"
