JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Nine hundred Jackson State University students are taking part in a program in which they will get iPads for school work.

 Chemistry professor William McHenry tells WLBT-TV (http://bit.ly/OKPy9o) that the iPad Technology Advantage Scholarship Initiative, a nonprofit foundation, will distribute the iPads to the students this week. He says the program will help students save money on textbooks. The students will save their work virtually, allowing their instructors to track their progress.

The iPads also have security and tracking software. Most of the course textbooks will be available for purchase online. Some are discounted because they’re in e-form. The students must complete two years to gain ownership of the iPads.
