Missouri University's new policy! Effective this fall 2009! Missouri's Journalism students majoring in Journalism will be required to have either an iPod Touch or an iPhone! They will be required to own one of the devices for the delivery of freshman-orientations information and of course material for their course.
I think this is cool myself but many might not agree - a school is going to force one into buying either the iPod Touch or the iPhone. What will be nice about using either device is you would be able to electronically download material from iTunes University, a no-cost component of the AppStore.
What do you think about this new policy? It is a good choice for the University or not? And what would be your reaction if you had to go out and buy one of these for one of your classes?
Missouri Journalism School: Get an Apple iPhone or Go Home.
