The Mobile Teaching and Learning Charter is a planning document that
makes policy recommendations. It is a joint recommendation from the
Instructional Technology Policy Advisory Committee (ITPAC) and the Provost's Council.
All new, on-campus students enrolled at FHSU are expected to have
available a mobile computing device in the form of a tablet, laptop
or netbook computer for use in university learning experiences of
all types. Because of their versatility, enhanced functionality
and compatibility with classroom use, the university recommends,
but does not require, the acquisition of tablet computers. Some
programs (e.g. graphic design) and individual instructors employ
Apple computers in their courses and/or curriculum. This exception
to policy is permitted, but students should check with their advisers
or an individual faculty member teaching the class to assess whether
Apple computing devices are required in a course.
Students have the freedom to choose and purchase equipment
from any vendor when preparing for this technology-enhanced learning
environment. However, equipment and software purchased must have the
capability to run software applications specified by the University
and must meet the hardware/software specifications listed
in the Resources section.
