iPod, distance learning

Abilene Christian University is planning to use video iPods to teach students from afar. The school is offering attendees of its Master of Arts in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation or Master of Education in Leadership of Learning programs video iPods as part of the course cost, providing access to videos and other study materials on-the-go. The classes are the first in what the university is calling "ACU WorldWide," designed primarily to bring ACU's classes to students in urban and global markets, according to the Abilene Reporter-News. "The people who need graduate degrees are busy professionals, and they don't have the time to come to a university," said Dr. Gary Tucker, director of distance education. "This will allow them to take classes that will fit into their lifestyles." The master's of education degree is available entirely online, while the conflict management degree requires a one-week residency in Dallas where students will practice negotiation skills.
