Apple Expands Worldwide Access to Educational Content

Apple has announced that iBooks Textbooks and iTunes U Course Manager are expanding into new markets across Asia, Latin America, Europe, and elsewhere around the world. iBooks Textbooks bring Multi-Touch texts with dynamic, current, and interactive content to teachers and students in 51 countries. iTunes U Course Manager, available in 70 countries, allows educators to create and distribute courses for their own classrooms, or share them publicly, on the iTunes U app. “The incredible content and tools available for iPad provide teachers with new ways to customize learning unlike ever before,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “We can’t wait to see how teachers in even more countries will create their new lesson plans with interactive textbooks, apps, and rich digital content.”
