Students gain access to textbooks via iPhone
CourseSmart has developed an iPhone application that lets college students review textbooks and digital notes as well as perform search functions via an iPhone or an iPod Touch. "Nobody is going to use their iPhone to do their homework, but this does provide real mobile learning. If you're in a study group and you have a question, you can immediately access your text," said Frank Lyman, executive vice president at CourseSmart.
