Back in 2012, Apple added the iTunes U app to iOS. This education app allows educators from leading universities, as well as other schools, the ability to add content for students to access from their iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. The free app makes it possible for people all over the world to take courses from such educational institutions as Stanford, Yale, MIT, Oxford, and more.
Today, Apple announced an update to the iTunes U app that makes it possible for teachers to create, edit, and manage entire courses directly on the iPad. Additionally, students have new ways to collaborate with others, including starting a class discussion and asking a question, right from their iPad.
