    Copyright

    In the States there are limits on the use copyrighted material even if it is used for education. Posting a PDF copy on the college server for students to copy and use would not be acceptable. Also, e-textbooks are evolving into so much more then just a PDF. They are increasing being embedded with multimedia content and creating a dynamic textbook versus a static one.

    In ppt you can do the same if you save it as one embedded file. I forget how off the top of my head but it can be done.

    I've only been using the Ipad for a week, but I'm teaching two summer classes, so I'm putting it to use. I've been using the Gradebook EasyGradePro for about 10 years on my Mac laptops, and there's an app called Gradebook Pro that works pretty much the same way, so I've set two classes up on using that.

    I've also been using Dropbox and Evernote as well as my iDisk to play with transferring lecture notes from my laptop to the iPad for editing.

    I'm trying to learn the fine points of Pages, and so far like it.

    I've also been trying Quickoffice, and the Word Processor seems fine, but I've been having trouble getting it to connect to my iDisk, so haven't used it that much. It connects with Google docs and Dropbox just fine.

    I've been trying PrintCentral Pro, but I'm not real happy with it--it works, but I'm getting only the page that appears on the iPad screen. I probably just need to tweak the settings.

    I'm also doing a great deal of writing using Pages--I find an external keyboard crucial for this. I haven't really worked with putting things in APA or MLA format yet, but I'm guessing it won't be too hard.

    I've found it incredibly useful for lectures and writings to have my MacBook open in Safari to use Project Muse or JStor to call up articles or to use Google to get some information and then be able to write with the iPad right next to the MacBook--talk about efficiency and saving time.

    Good luck--I'm new too, so I'm following this thread with great interest.

    Mendeley is a free crop- platform collaborative app that stores and organizes papers. The iOS apps are a little wonky, but overall this is useful for me. Haven't tried Papers

    Any of you guys that are into Differential Calculus, check out the Wolfram apps - their Advanced Calculus is awesome. You need an Internet connection (it's hosted on their 'super computer') but differentiation, integration (single, double and triple integrals), vector fields, 2D and 3D plots (contour or surface plots), the list goes on and on - in the UK it's only £2.99 (what, are these guys crazy??), so I guess that's about $5-6 in the US. Now that's the app that I'd want on my Desert Island (see the other thread!) - oh - no Internet on the desert island - OK, pull out the HP-35....

    For Me DocsToGo or QuickOffice Pro is good choice. iWork for iPad is nice option too.
