Apple launches promised iTunes U 2.0 with full course creation

updated 04:30 pm EDT, Tue July 8, 2014

Discussions let students, teachers communicate

As promised at the end of June, Apple has released a major update of iTunes U, v2.0. On the iPad, teachers can now create and manage courses entirely on their own, including assignments, outlines, and other course materials. Custom content can be added via an "Open in iTunes U" extension in other iOS apps such as Pages and Keynote; photos and video can be captured and uploaded directly. If a teacher is associated with a qualifying institution, they can publish courses to the official iTunes U catalog.

On both the iPhone and iPad, students and teachers in private courses can participate in forum-style discussions. Comments can address individual posts and assignments, or the course at large. Push notifications are used to indicate when new replies have been added.

The update is a free download, and runs on any device with iOS 7 or later.
