Apple’s iTunes U gets 1-to-1 discussions, importing from other apps, PDF notes, grade book, more

Apple’s iTunes U service, a resource for instructors to create and manage educational content for students on iPad, is today getting a huge update that brings a long list of highly asked for functions. Starting today, teachers and students making use of the platform will certainly get access to brand-new additions including 1-to-1 discussions, research hand-in & & grade book functions, PDF comments, and more.

One of the most significant functions presenting today is an enhanced way for teachers and students to interact by means of brand-new one-to-one conversation capability. A brand-new research hand-in feature is also arriving today with PDF annotations, and an integrated grade book will certainly notify teachers when a project is ready for grading or communication with the student.
Lastly, iTunes U will certainly now enable teachers to import content from other apps including Apple’s own Keynote, Pages, and iMovie and a variety of third-party apps consisting of Book Developer, Stop Movement, Explain Everything, and others. That will certainly enable both teachers and students to work on teaching materials or tasks in the other apps and quickly upload to iTunes U for handing in tasks, dispersing material to students, or even more partnership.

The new functions should be available today for teachers and students using the iTunes U iPad app.
