Apple Expands iTunes U Education App for iPads

Apple Expands iTunes U Education App for iPads | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
Apple will soon take another step toward persuading schools to ditch textbooks in favor of iPads by giving instructors a tool to teach from the tablet.

 

The company said that it would issue an upgrade on July 8 for iTunes U, its set of tools for educators. The update introduces a new app that allows instructors to create, edit and assign course work using the iPad. (Before, instructors had to log on to a computer and handle course materials through a web browser.)

Apple Tech advice: How to replace the glass on an old iPad

Apple Tech advice: How to replace the glass on an old iPad | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

I’ve been both curious and terrified about the process of replacing damaged front glass on a first-or second-generation iPad, but this was the last thing I wanted to attempt on my own. I ventured over to Fix That Mac in Berkeley, California to talk to Rory Pierce and get the perspective of someone who repairs several iPad screens per week and is confident in what he’s doing.

Peter Mellow's insight:

Or, get a stall at a shopping mall to do it for you for a very good price!

The addition of discussions moves iTunesU from an elaborate textbook to something that involves collaboration - a good move. Pity it's only for private courses.

I’m creating a website of Mac and iOS tutorials and tips and I’m wondering if there’s a way to make a screen recording in iOS like there is through QuickTime in OS X.


Regrettably, unless you jailbreak your device, there isn’t a way to capture its screen directly on the device. However, with the help of your Mac, it can be easily done.
