Apple has just added a huge collection of resources for teachers to its iTunes store. Open iTunes and look at the menu at the top of the screen. Below the main menu there is a set of icons. Click on the one that looks like a graduation cap.
“Apple will this month continue the gradual expansion of its course management system, iTunes U. In an update expected to roll out around July 8, the company will finally add discussion forums, enabling students and instructors to discuss the course without leaving the app. Instructors will also be able to build courses directly on their iPads without having to use a computer.”
Does Apple plan to make iTunesU a full-fledged LMS? Stay tuned.
