Dr. Castro handing faculty member an IpadPresident Joseph I. Castro formally launched Fresno State’s Tablet Program, DISCOVERe, in Fall of 2014. Faculty members from across the University agreed to redesign courses to leverage tablets. The goal of DISCOVERe is to lower the cost of student textbooks and to facilitate student success both in content mastery and technology skill-set building.

A New Tablet Loaner Program!

Fresno State has launched an all new tablet loaner program for DISCOVERe students! To qualify, students must be enrolled in a DISCOVERe course and demonstrate financial need.  Students will be notified by email if they qualify for a loaner tablet at the beginning of the semester.

If you are interested in purchasing a tablet, the Kennel Bookstore will continue to have the four approved tablets that meet the minimum required specifications for you to choose from. The bookstore will also offer up to a two- semester payment plan to help assist students with the purchase of their tablet.  For more information on purchasing a tablet please visit www.kennelbookstore.com and select the DISCOVERe link at the bottom of the page.

Please note that the grants offered for tablet purchase in previous years are no longer available.

If you have questions or concerns about the DISCOVERe program based on your needs as a student with a disability, please contact the Services for Students with Disabilities office at 278.2811.

Students who currently own a tablet may bring their own device as long as it meets the current minimum specifications found here
