Apple Announces Big iTunes U Update

Apple’s iTunes U was a dedicated app for helping students and unfortunately it is one of those apps now which have long been forgotten. Though it didn’t quite turn out he way Apple might have expected, it is still going to receive an update which has been announced by the company. This update is going to bring multiple new features along with services which are going to make their way as early as next week. Apple apps usually tend to grab a lot of attention and the iTunes U wasn’t any different when it first launched back in 2007, however the service was left semi dormant by Apple by 2012 and it has since then been forgotten. The surprising bit about the app was that it provided audio tracks, videos, and other such content related to learning and was supported by a couple of universities.

With the announcement of updating the app, we are looking forward to a multitude of new features and apps. According to Eddy Cue, the app is “an amazing selection of academic materials for everyone around the world,” and the update will bring tons of features beneficial to students as well as teachers. It would become easier for teachers to create and modify courses using their iPads and they can also source content from any one of the 75,000+ apps gracing the educational category for iPad apps. There is a Discussions hub too which is largely going to benefit the students. Teachers and students can interact with one another on this platform.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
