If you wish to receive an IPad, please indicate the course(s) you will try to use the iPad in to enhance the learning experience

A form I just got from the Academic Affairs office, as part of Seton Hill University’s plan to provide iPads to its faculty (along with all full-time students). 

This is just my roughest first draft.  What do you think? What would you do with iPads in the classroom?
