They say that the iPad makes learning quicker and more interesting (the term fun was used), in essence, more game-like. I do wonder how well the iPad would do in a crisis situation where the training material is needed, as opposed to using a paper manual or printed instructions. Sorry, captain, I couldn't respond because the battery in my iPad died? Oh oh. Now where did that paper copy go?</p>
