Fraser Speirs has an overview of what’s new in Apple’s education platform. I have yet to hear of a school in my area using this instead of Google Classroom. That’s not to say that they aren’t out there, but Google seems to be the preferred platform in my admittedly limited experience.
iTunes U 3.0 brings three key features to the platform:
- Assignment submission, grading and feedback.
- Per-assignment private communication between instructors and students
- A unified course grade book for all assignments given in the course
