iTunes U Now Lets Teachers Invite Students to Lesson Plans

iTunes U Now Lets Teachers Invite Students to Lesson Plans | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
Apple’s online educational catalog, iTunes U, updated its app and website on Wednesday by adding enhanced features to make it even more convenient for students and educators. Now, educators have the ability to distribute courses privately and invite students to take them. Any teacher can signup to offer courses via iTunes U.

 

KF:  These shifts follow a global trend of shifting from LMS to VLE/PLE.  The capabilities of iTunesU are being realised by many institutions.

How Big a Deal Is Apple's iTunes U Course Manager? | Inside Higher Ed

How Big a Deal Is Apple's iTunes U Course Manager? | Inside Higher Ed | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

Have you gotten your head around Apple's iTunes U Course Manager?

 

Let me explain how I understand Course Manager, as I remain somewhat confusedabout exactly what this does and how big a deal this platform might be.

 

In the future I expect that the features available in Apple iOS Courses will improve. FaceTime seems like a natural addition - so students and instructors could easily jump into a video chat when spending time with the educational content. Some sort of assessment and survey engine should be a relatively straightforward addition. Perhaps Apple will add polling, so the iOS Course can be used to complement a face-to-face class.

 

Despite these challenges, I see the evolving Course Manager and iTunes U Courses as a compelling development. We have struggled to find a robust way to deliver a combination of text and multimedia curricular content that is organized around a course narrative to mobile devices.

 

Apple seems to be offering us, or at least those of us fully in the Apple universe, a solution.
