At today’s education event, Apple also announced an overhaul of its iTunes U service with the debut of a new iTunes U application for the iPad. Designed to provide a new and more interactive way of accessing the previously podcast-based iTunes U curriculum, the new application allows users to not only download course material but also interact with teachers and professors by providing access to assignments, updates, course notes, lectures and presentations. The app also provides integration with iBooks based textbooks allowing users to consolidate notes and highlights from their texts into the iTunes U app for easy review. Teachers and instructors can use iTunes U to layout out course syllabi, customizing topics, delivering content and lectures integrated with iBooks textbooks and providing additional information such as course notes, reading lists, office hours and more. iTunes U is available from the App Store as a free download and is a universal app requiring iOS 5.0 or later.
