Filed under: Optimist — hleiphart @ 4:30 pm

BusinessWire – Abilene Christian University’s student-run media staff announces its commitment to produce the first paper of its kind for Apple’s iPad. Dr. Cheryl Bacon, chair of ACU’s Department of Journalism and Mass Communication, says students and faculty already are working to achieve this goal.

“This is yet another opportunity for our students to make use of a cutting-edge delivery system — the third version of mobile media delivery we have pioneered,” Bacon says. She cites her department’s track record: dissemination of The Optimist student newspaper via iPhone in the fall of 2007; adoption of an updated application in the fall of 2008; and now, ACU’s preparation for delivery of The Optimist on the iPad this spring.  Read the rest of the article from Forbes.com.

ACU also was mentioned in a NBC Nightly News video clip, around 1:52.
