Can I still get an iPhone?
Not through FHU. You can directly deal with AT&T or Verizon. You will, however, qualify for a discount on your monthly service plan.
Do students need both an iPad and MacBook?
Yes. Having both devices assures the students have all the technology devices they need to be successful at FHU.
For example, there will be times the MacBook will be needed, such as writing research papers, creating project presentations and accessing Blackboard, our learning management system, etc. In addition, all faculty have MacBooks and some make extensive use of several MacBook applications in their classrooms.
The iPad, with its 10 hour battery life and portability, will be the main device the students generally carry around on campus and always have with them. With the iPad, the students will be able read, study and interact with digital resources and digital textbooks like Inkling (http://www.inkling.com), check email, look at their schedules, access educational apps from the iTunes App Store, etc.
