A facelift for iBooks wasn’t the only change on Apple’s agenda today, as the company’s SVP has just announced an overhaul of iTunes U. The service, mostly used as a means of delivering lectures to college students, has seen over 700 million downloads since its launch and is now gearing up to offer full online courses from the likes of Duke University. As an example of this new remote method of learning, the company demoed a Chemistry course at its event, showing an overview, syllabus, credits and even the professor’s office hours. Tabs are placed along the right side of page with options for Info, Posts, Notes and Materials, allowing teachers to send assignment updates direct to students.
