COD - 8/8/2012 - iTunes U [Courses]

Apple now allows all K-12 teachers to create private iTunes U courses for their students using the free iTunes Course Manager web app.

Now, all K-12 teachers can sign in with their Apple ID and create private courses. Public courses, however, still require school or institution enrollment.

iTunes U courses can include traditional course material such as a syllabus, handouts, quizzes, and audio and video of your lectures. You can also use material available in the iBookstore, App Store and iTunes, including the 500,000-plus free public resources in the iTunes U catalog. You can duplicate your course, make modifications, and use it for a new class.

Apple hosts your materials and makes them available to anyone taking the course. You send a code or the URL of the course to your students inviting them to enroll in the course and access content via the free iTunes U app on the iPad, iPhone, or Touch.

K-12 school districts, universities, and colleges in 26 countries can enroll in iTunes U to distribute courses and collections of education content that anyone can access.
