In an effort to find out the impact of the iPad on journalism, RJI Program Director for Digital Publishing Roger Fidler and the Reynolds Journalism Institute have launched a National iPad survey.
With iPad sales expected to hit 28 million in 2011, more than personal computers, consumers are accessing their news direct from their tablets. What does this mean for the journalism industry.
“The results from the survey will help journalists, journalism educators and other media practitioners better understand how the widespread adoption of the iPad and similar mobile devices may influence the future of the news media,” says Fidler.
He’s conducting the survey and making it available to all iPad users. The survey is available until October and can be found at http://rji.ipadsurvey.sgizmo.com/s3/ . By completing the survey, you may be eligible to win iTunes gift cards by signing up to participate in follow-up surveys next year.
