A reason has finally surfaced for individuals to keep their mobile devices open and running while in the classroom, as the iTunes U app is now available for iPhones and iPads. This app will allow entire courses to be developed through connecting students and teachers within an interface that allows the viewing of entire lectures, sharing of notes, questions and other related videos. It is practically a new age of education through social media.
The concept of the iTunes U app is easily implementable within any classroom, and will cut corners when students need to refer to material they may have missed in class or need to speak to a teacher but cannot reach them physically. Worries of having to scavenge through e-mails or worry about not having enough friends to take notes in class when one is absent can be erased, as everything in the classroom will be contained within the iTunes U app. Furthermore, this app will also be the perfect place to check for older material that will save students and teachers the time of having to document and store them physically.
