College Gives iPads, Enrollment Rises 17.7%

June 28, 2017

Ed-tech blogger Josh Kim writes in Inside Higher Ed that Maryville University's experience with giving all students iPads should cause higher education to re-examine conclusions about 1:1 technology programs and the value of using a single device for all students. He notes that some of the early outcomes since Maryville started giving iPads to all traditional students in 2016 include:

  • For the fall 2017 application season,  inquiries more than doubling to 37,500.
  • Traditional enrollment rising 17.7 percent over two years.
  • 2016 freshmen enrollment finishing 45 percent ahead of fall 2015 freshmen.
