- Remark: iPad, Android or Windows tablets are welcome at the course. Participants get updated lists of apps with practical examples of use to take back to their classes. However, we have to remind you that there is a rich collection of free apps useful for education on the market for iPad and Android and not so many for Win tablets, so consequently Win tablet users profit less from the course.
