Researchers are always looking for ways to work more efficiently and the iPad can potentially help you. The iPad is a tool for consumption of information and for productivity. As a researcher you can be mobile and conduct research in the field with an iPad, attend a seminar or conference, and stay in touch.
This seminar will cover some of the productivity apps such as Pages, Evernote and Good Reader; working in the Cloud with tools like Dropbox; and finding apps in the iTunes store. It will be a collaborative learning session, and those who are already using iPads are encouraged to come along and share their knowledge and discoveries.
