Apple is making its iTunes U online learning service even more accessible as of Thursday with the introduction of its iTunes U app for the iPad.
The app links users to iTunes U courses, supports notes, class outlines and assignments, tracks instructor office hours and class credits, and messaging with instructors. Notes from iBooks 2 textbooks sync with the iTunes U app, too.
iTunes U on the iPad
iTunes U offers more that 500,000 free lectures on a wide range of subjects from schools and institutions such as Stanford, Yale, MIT, the New York Public Library and MoMA.
The iTunes U app is free and is available at Apple’s iTunes-based App Store.
