Abilene Christian University (ACU) has become the first to publish a student newspaper on the iPad, further expanding the scope of the Apple tablet to anyone and everyone.

ACU's newspaper The Optimist is now available through the iPad's digital marketplace. Today's announcement is the culmination of months' of work by the university's communications department.

"We had a nine-week window to set goals, prioritize and implement our vision, and we accomplished what we set out to do," said ACU journalism professor Kenneth Pybus.

The faculty said it took a while to figure out how to configure everything for the iPad screen and formatting but in the end, they became the first in the country to accomplish this feat.

ACU is no stranger to Apple's technology, as it previous released similar content for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
