[For Education] – Apple iTunes U


Another Apple app for Education is iTunes U (available on the App Store) which is for showing course-lectures, discussions, language-lessons … from many universities in the world. Students can study online courses which are in iTunes U, and, certainly, STUDY FOR FREE there! Teachers can use iTunes U for creating their own lessons, courses, … and then “open” them for their online students. All things are built and managed by a Web-based Tools – iTunes U Course Manager.

Apple announced Q3 Result – the report made many debates

 Third Quarter Result caused many contests most …

Apple gave their Business Report in Q3, 2013.  According to the Summary document, the Total profit is $35,323 billionless than the Q2, 2013 (decreases $8,28 billion).

This made many people concerned. There were some rumors and unrest about Apple situation.

However, there’re still some things to continue hoping. At the WWDC 2013, Apple has introduced the “newest series”, one of the impressive products is the New MacBook Air, along with OS X Mavericks – that didn’t let people disappoint. 🙂

Los angeles has bought Apple IPad to teach their students

[On June 19th, 2013]

According to Apple’s News, the LA Unified School District has awarded Apple $30 million for iPad Deal, to distribute to their students in this area. They are going to teach students via iPad, instead of the “traditional teaching” with black-board and books.

Education is in Apple’s DNA and we’re thrilled to work with Los Angeles Unified public schools on this major initiative as they plan to roll out iPads to every student across 47 campuses this fall.

“The Board voted unanimously for Apple because iPad rated the best in quality, was the least expensive option and received the highest scoring by the review panel that included students and teachers,” said Jaime Aquino, LAUSD Deputy Superintendent of Instruction. “The vote is another step forward in the District’s plan to equip every one of its students with a device by 2014. When completed, the LAUSD will become the largest district in the nation to provide each of its students with the technology.”

Apple will provide iPads that include the Pearson Common Core System of Courses delivered via a new app as part of the integrated solution. Apps such as iWork®, iLife® and iTunes®, in addition to a range of educational third-party apps are also included.

— said Apple

So, be happy, students ! It’s not too long to have your own favorite and convenient equipment, iPad, to study at school.
