One-iPad-per-child schools are growing in number, in the quest for a digital alternative to the backpack full of textbooks. The new iTunes U app reveals a new emphasis on ‘courses’ of digital texts created by instructors. Combine these with the desire for mobile-ready learning materials, and we may have a perfect storm guaranteed to capsize traditional learning materials.
In addition to providing a chance for audience discussion about these trends, this presentation covered iTunes U basics; showed how to make an iPad-ready iBook; and offered tips on making mobile-ready learning materials for non-Apple devices as well.
