[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

Learning just became slightly more digital for Apple users. Apple has launched a newer iTunes U app that lets teachers create and manage courses including things like lectures, assignments, books, and quizzes, which can be accessed by iOS users around the world. The iTunes U app gives iOS users access to the world’s largest catalog of free educational content from universities including Cambridge, Duke, Harvard, Oxford and Stanford. Any K-12 school district can offer full courses through the iTunes U app now, says Apple. iTunes U has been dowloaded over 700 million times.

In addition to reading books, viewing presentations, lectures and assignment lists, students can receive push notifications so they always have the latest class information. The iTunes U app is available as a free download from the App Store. Keep in mind, functionalities will vary depending on whether you are using the iPad or Mac.
