  • A useful Apple tool for learning

    This is definitely one of the best apps developed for students. The iTunes U app provides a variety of free courses that have been developed by some of the best educators and teachers from the leading universities and schools. These courses can be easily downloaded to iPhone and iPad, which makes them even more student friendly. While going through the content, I was amazed to see the variety and quality of courses. Along with the courses, the app also has a free digital catalog that is enormous in size and iBooks. The only drawback is that there is no 'live' assistance to clear the doubts, and there is no link to social media. However, it is still a great way to learn, especially for High School and College students.

  • Tips for using the product

    Whether you want to top up your knowledge, learn a new skill or find out more about a course you are interested in, iTunes U is the perfect place to do just that, and its outlet through a dedicated app only enhances the experience.
