Leading electronics manufacturer Apple will soon open iTunes U Course to another 70+ countries which includes South Africa.
“With in-country support from Digicape, iTunes U Course Manager lets South African educators expose their course material to a global audience for the first time”, said Alan Goldberg, director of education at Digicape.
The iTune course is a web-based tool for instructors to create, edit, design, distribute and teach all digital courses, which can be enhanced with a variety of audio, video, books and other materials to augment course materials and shared with students in possession of an Apple ID and iOS device, within the iTunes U app.
Instructors in institutions can send course links to their iTunes U public site manager administrator, who can publish it to their institution’s iTunes U site and make it available publicly in the iTunes U catalogue.
The company is seeing a lot of excitement among schools, universities and colleges around the country, as they look to adopt digital delivery platforms.
“iTunes U is the world’s largest catalogue of online education content and iTunes U Course Manager supports multiple media types from various sources, for the richest possible online education experience. This is the new way of learning, embraced by educators and students around the world,” he concludes.
