St. Mary’s University: It’s graduate school online learning on the iPad, and it’s spreading

By Christopher Magan, Twin Cities Pioneer Press

Marcel Dumestre, vice president of graduate and professional programs at St. Mary’s, taught these types of online courses. Although he thought they were effective, he wanted to do something different: a complete experience in which students from around the world could study and interact anywhere, anytime.

“What is different about these programs from others online is they are built to be native to the iPad,” said Dumestre, who believes the university’s approach is unique. Educators across the nation have put Apple’s tablets into the hands of tens of thousands of students. Like many of the devices champions, Dumestre thinks the device has the power to enhance the learning experience like no other.
