Apple Moving Into Classrooms More With iTunes U

Apple has shown how much they love seeing iPads in the classroom in the past, pointing to the benefits that they receive from seeing their brand be looked on as an educational leader. That is precisely why they are starting a new initiative to get iPads in more classrooms than ever with an update to iTunes U.

Apple Balla reports that the update for iTunes U makes it possible to create and manage course content from an iPad, pulling content and learning materials from a variety of sources including iBooks, iWork, and thousands of other Apps.

They be able to take their own photos and integrate them into courses as well, creating a truly educational experience that doesn’t tax the teacher’s time any more than existing methods. They also look to start classroom discussions through the tablets in a feature they are calling Discussions. This will make it possible for students to talk about a variety of topics, while the teacher manages them all from her own account. Push Notifications, starting new topics, and subscribing to old ones will make it much easier to handle.

Other companies like Amazon have also made moves to get into more classrooms, with their Kindle Fire tablet. But it remains to be seen how effective they are join to be with their own. At the moment, Apple remains much more active and capable when it comes to these kinds of educational needs.

This is only the latest step in Apple’s move towards education. With other initiatives set to start soon, it is only a matter of time before they are a leader in this sector.
