The use of iPods in education (in particularly) seems to be really taking off, and this is clearly due to the the fact that the devices are already being used by the students, so they don’t have to think about yet another piece of hardware they have to pick up.  iPods (and MP3) players are now pretty much indispensable.

This a clear lesson for anyone wanting to create a successful e-learning solution – make sure it fits in well with the audience’s way of working.
