This thesis explores the possibilities of using iPad in a master study environment as a mobile tool for collaboration among students. The study is done in the period of one semester at IFI2 building at the University of Oslo. 11 iPads were borrowed by participating students. Ethnography-based observations, workshops and interviews were used to collect some specific data about students’ use of iPad in their research habits. Requirements and needs for the mobile application were collected throughout the semester. After that, the mobile application is designed according to the needs and requirements of students. The prototype for the application was then tested with some of the study participants, and improvements were made. The application helps students organize into study or research groups. Within the group they can give ratings, comments and annotations of research articles they share. This activity is meant to help them understand the papers they read and have more enjoyable time studying than if they were doing it all alone.
