Thanks for the info on Coursesmart. I didn't know about it.
I do think that it would take a little getting used to (e-text books). I am not doing well on my how to books that are on my touch.
I am too used to pen and paper, or highlighting. I guess I could still take conventional notes, but I need to experiment with highlighting on the screen.
Highlighting works great on a touch screen, so I'd imagine the iPad will make it very easy. I still take traditional notes, just because one of the ways that I learn new info is to write it out over and over again while saying it out loud. But taking quick notes on the iPad should be no problem.
