    from Furrybluem:
    I agree that universal ipads from scratch would be costly, but many schools are already investing in the ipad hardware. If you have a school that has the ipads, buying just the ibooks would be cheaper. Our modern students are not reading traditional texts and may be persuaded to read ibooks with video links, etc. Why buy tools that aren’t being used?
