Digital Flagship University is on Its Way!

International Edu News

Ohio, US: State University and Apple together have been working for its Digital Flagship University initiative. The university and Apple were in a partnership to support digital learning through Apple's iOS technology.

The partnership, which began piloting iPad courses in January, will eventually see Apple contributing expertise to the university with the hope of elevating student and faculty skills in app development, coding and access to educational technology, said Corey Tressler, the associate director of learning programs for the university.

To facilitate that training and effective classroom use, Tressler and the university's eLearning team are offering coding courses to professors interested in incorporating the device into classes.

“Present [coding] to teachers as a professional learning opportunity. We’ll provide an intro to everybody about coding in general ... and those that want to can take advantage of those courses," Tressler said.
