Mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets have revolutionized how we communicate and access information. So why not use them as an educational tool? That's the question Walters State asked a couple of years ago. Today, we are at the forefront of mobile learning. Walters State was one of the first community colleges in the country to implement a mobilization plan to engage students from admission through graduation. Each academic division has developed a plan to integrate mobile learning devices into classroom instruction. Faculty members are using over 60 different apps in nearly every subject to engage students. And we make iPads accessible to students through iPad carts used in classrooms and iPads that can be checked out in the library. This dynamic approach to learning not only enhances our students educational experience but increases their chances of completing a degree.

For Dr. Abigail Goosie, iPads and apps are more than just effective technologies for connecting with her students. They are helping her to improve student-learning outcomes and evaluate her own teaching methods.

An assistant professor of biology, human anatomy, and physiology, Goosie administers tests on iPads and uses numerous apps in both her classroom lectures and lab courses.

She says there are several advantages to students taking tests on the iPad.

“In addition to the environmental benefit of saving paper, students receive their grade as soon as their test is submitted, and they can see which questions they missed and remediate on the topic immediately,” said Goosie.
