Once you’re enrolled in a course, you’ll have instant access to all its materials with at few taps on the iTunes app on your iPhone or iPad. Professors make sure to include all documents, presentations, spreadsheets, graphs, audio files, videos, podcasts, web links, iBooks, and any other iOS apps that will be used as resources during assignments as the course progresses. These materials are always available on your device for easy reference, while in the classroom or after class.
If you are using iTunes U on a 3rd generation iPad or later, or on an iPad mini 2 or later, you can now annotate PDF files using a stylus or your finger. These notes add personalized context to your learning materials without having to leave iTunes U.
