Law Society of Ireland’s Law School, the country’s leading provider of solicitor training, posed the question of how to digitise and distribute course content – with a focus on modernising the learning experience. The answer was iPad.
Content for the Law School’s Professional Practice Courses (PPC) is now distributed using iTunes U on iPad. Custom Multi-Touch books and apps, along with course materials like legislation and case studies, are easily accessible online. Students use iPad and Apple TV to work collaboratively and present results in class.
"Presentation College Carlow have been working with Compu b for the past 4 years. Their service is excellent. All of the products are priced favourably for education, especially iPads. We have ordered hundreds at this point and have excellent warranty on all of them - which is essential for students. We have been offered training each year for students and staff and have availed of excellent training on 10 occasions, learning about new apps, security etc. The online shop is so easy for people to use, codes for schools, speedy delivery, excellent advice! I can't recommend the team enough. Digital literacy is essential and with Compu b you get quality products and after sales service."

“The main reason I wanted to go with Apple is because iPads are tried and tested at this stage, and because of the amount of educational apps available… Compu b put together the most professional proposal and they were very good communicators. I get good technical support from them and training. You know they are always at the end of the phone, which was invaluable when we were setting up the Apple IDs for each child and giving them email addresses… I can already see the benefits in terms of the children’s attitude to learning and I have huge confidence in iPads as tools to support learning, but we’re realistic in our expectations. This is all new and it is going to take time for us as teachers to get the best out of it. It’s been a great success. The children are enthusiastic about it; the teachers are enthusiastic and the school community supports us – I think it’s a great initiative.”
