    Ohio State University launches its new Digital Flagship University with Apple

    https://techcrunch.com/2017/10/05/oh...?ref=techi.com

    In a statement, Apple chief executive officer Tim Cook said “This unique program will give students access to the incredible learning tools on iPad, as well as Apple’s new coding curriculum that teaches critical skills for jobs in some of the country’s fastest-growing sectors. I’m thrilled the broader central Ohio community will also have access to coding opportunities through Ohio State’s new iOS Design Lab.”

    Ohio State has already integrated Apple products into many of its courses. Some examples it gave include using iPads to do fieldwork on plant life in biology classes, teach marching band formations and provide clinical instruction at the Wexner Medical Center. Chemistry lectures and assignments have also been made available through iTunes, while Ohio State’s College of Social Work published the first three iTunes U courses on social work in the United States.

    So in order to take advantage of Ohio State's online offerings, prospective students will have to purchase Apple gear and plug themselves into the Apple eco-system?

    Starting in fall 2018, matriculating freshmen will also be supplied with an iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, which Ohio State says will be funded through its administrative efficiency program.
    From the article, I read the above.

    The students are the taxpayers or the taxplayers?
