At the University of Applied Health Sciences, the iPad tablets are used at the undergraduate professional study programs Environmental Health Engineering and Laboratory Medical Diagnostics as part of the practical classes in Biology and Chemistry. Four applications are used within the framework of the unit titled “Preparing Solutions”, “Periodic Table”, “Molarity”, “Chemist” and “Beaker”. Within the class on Biology, tablet computer applications are used to cover subject matter dealing with Genetics and Cell Structure (application “Cytogenetics”, “Diseases and disorders”, “Gene Screen”, “Population Genetics” and “Cell World”). Though e-teaching certainly cannot replace the classic course teaching, it is greatly beneficial for easier acquiring of the course subject matter.
