How Itunes U might Replace Academic Books in Classrom

Apple 's entry into the Higher Education Space was an Interesting one , and might  pave the way for Digital eLearning  and enure immense reach.In the last academic year, students spent more than $5 billion on textbooks. The iPad is a substitute for textbooks. And as more and more of those pricey textbooks are available on the iPad – for much less money than the paper version – students will see a huge reduction in the amount of money they have to spend on those textbooks.
While the iTunes U app provides access to the content that’s available in the iTunes U section of the iTunes Store, it also offers a means for teacher and student interaction. The opening interface looks a lot like Apple’s iBooks app, with a bookshelf that hosts icons representing your courses. Tap on a course, and you’ll see a list of topics on the left, such as Overview, Instructor, and OutlineTeachers can post a syllabus, notes, and assignments to the class, and students receive notifications when new posts are available.
. More than 600 universities, plus other cultural institutions like the New York Public Library, MoMA, and PBS stations are on iTunes U. Teachers can distribute course materials through iTunes U as well, using ePub and PDF file formats.
