Apple’s iTunes U gets 1-to-1 discussions, importing from other apps, PDF annotations, grade book, more

So, this is nice. PDF Annotations means iTunes U can really be a one stop shop for offline resources (students can submit work when back on Wifi). 1:1 conversations with students also opens up a great new discussion platform. For me, I am looking forward to seeing how this can be used as a way to deliver specialised courses (such as a wellbeing program) that normally have a lot of the dreaded ‘hand-out sheet’ The 1:1 conversations could then allow some private feedback and conclusion in an easy way to both teacher and student.
Timely, as I am working on this right now… Will keep you posted.
