Dear students,

If you are interested in getting a tablet, please send an email to Prof. Antonio Rangel (arangel@caltech.edu) with all of the following information:

Full nameCaltech email addressBrief description of educational or research needs for the equipment (1-2 sentences)

Requests will be reviewed within 24 hrs. Approved requests will be forwarded to a team in the Library who will purchase the equipment and ship it directly to students.

We ask that you request an iPad only if you require it for your coursework and/or research.  Resources for this program are limited, which means that we cannot guarantee that everyone who submits a request will receive an iPad.  We thank you for keeping this in mind. 

Additional information:

The program will be administered by the Caltech Library. Questions about equipment maintenance, problems, and shipping should be referred to library@caltech.eduEvery effort will be made to ship the equipment to students as quickly as possible. However, our ability to do so might be subject to supply constraints.Information from CTLO and AMT on using digital whiteboard applications and devices with Zoom for teaching and collaboration is available here: http://teach.caltech.edu/tech-tools/whiteboard
