University of East London gives 4,000 of its students free tablet devices

The University of East London will give 4,000 of its students tablets with digital textbooks pre-loaded, according to the BBC.

Equipping all its new intake with the device will cost the university more than $3.2 million, and the students will be able to keep the tablet devices when they graduate. The Samsung Note 8 devices will come loaded with information about starting university and online library resources. There also will be “core e-textbooks” included, with the aim of reducing the initial cost of buying books.
