Tablet recommendations for faculty

iPads are the most-recommended tablet in teaching and education – in both K-12 and higher education. However, given our mixed environment and general creative needs, CEDC IT Services recommends tablets from all three of the major platforms: Apple iOS, Microsoft Surface, and Android. Of the three, Apple and Microsoft are considered top of the market.

Please note: A tablet is not a replacement for a laptop and cannot be used in the same way. Tablets are intended to be used as a supplementary device, not a primary work device.

Tablet requirements (choose the platform you're most comfortable with):

  • Must come with, or support, a writing device
  • Must support audio input/output
  • Must be able to share screen
  • Must support Zoom and at least one writing app
