Dean of the Manship School Jerry Ceppos has certainly made note of the rise of digital media in the classroom, as exemplified by his recent purchase of more than 20 iPads for Manship school faculty.When it comes to mass communication students, the iPad "changes the product you're producing," according to Lance Porter, associate professor in the Manship School. Porter gave a presentation to the Manship faculty before the semester began on how to use the iPad in the classroom and how it directly affects the curriculum of mass communication. "It's changing our jobs in a positive way," Porter said. "You really can't fight it."
