Very interesting article from the UK's The Independent on iPods as an
educational tool which are preloaded with content:

At France's leading business school, HEC Paris, students are taking
the idea of iPods in the classroom a step further, with what associate
dean Valerie Gauthier describes as "technology in the pipeline that
will set the standard for the use of quality education tools". As part
of an exclusive partnership with Apple, the school issues students
with the latest iPod Touch loaded with dedicated browsing software and
podcasts. They can then preview courses from a browser menu, and put
together a personalised programme to review at their leisure.
"Millennials are accustomed to receiving the exact information they
want, when and where they want it," says Gauthier. "The podcast of
tutorials gives them all the information for review whenever they want."

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
