Apple launches new iTunes U App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch

Telecom Lead Team:

Apple has launched an all-new iTunes U app, giving educators and students
everything they need on their iPad, iPhone and iPod touch to teach and take
entire courses.


The all-new
iTunes U app lets teachers manage courses including essential components such
as lectures, assignments, books, quizzes and syllabuses and offer them to
millions of iOS users around the world.


The iTunes U
app gives iOS users access to the world’s largest catalog of free educational
content from top universities including Cambridge, Duke, Harvard, Oxford and
Stanford, and starting today any K-12 school district can offer full courses
through the iTunes U app. iTunes U has already become an learning tool for
students with over 700 million downloads.


The all-new
iTunes U app enables students anywhere to tap into entire courses from the
world’s most prestigious universities,” said Eddy Cue, Apple‘s senior
vice president of Internet Software and Services.


Prior to
iTunes U, only students in the classroom at that time had access to educational
content from top universities. With the iTunes U app for iPad, iPhone and iPod
touch, those barriers no longer exist. Students anywhere can take an entire
course with complete access to all course materials right at their fingertips.


With the
iTunes U app, students are able to access new books right from within the app,
and any notes taken in iBooks are consolidated for easy reviewing. In addition
to reading books, viewing presentations, lectures and assignment lists,
students can receive push notifications so they always have the latest class


can quickly and easily create, manage and share their courses, quizzes and
handouts through a web-based tool and utilize content and links from the iTunes
U app, the Internet, iBookstore or the App Store as part of their curriculum.
They can also upload and distribute their own documents such as Keynote, Pages,
Numbers or books made with iBooks Author.
