iTunes U...all new!

If you’re an educator at a university, college, or K-12 school, now you have an easy way to design and distribute complete courses featuring audio, video, books, and other content. And students and lifelong learners can experience your courses for free through a powerful new app for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.

This is what apple is announcing via their the all new iTunes U page! With the recent launch of iBooks Author, this is a HUGE leap forward in the education world. I envision paperless classrooms and interactive learning at it's best. Although iTunes U has been around for a little bit, now the K-12 community can take advantage of this wonderful resource.

iTunes U is a free resource through iTunes and is available as a free download on iDevices through the App Store. The new "U" expands the experience for the classroom. All materials including audio, video, assignments, instructor posts, PDFs, presentations and more, can be uploaded to iTunes U and made readily available for students use by instructors.

Even if you a not an enrolled student of that college/course, you can still view courses and materials. Yes, you can! Click on over to the iTunes or go download the app on your iDevice and get to learning all your heart desires.
