If you don’t think education is going digital, this might be the final piece of evidence you need to change your mind—iTunes U has topped 300 million downloads in just three years. Education is changing, and Apple’s at the front of the line. Helping students with iPads and iPods, and letting them get course materials through iTunes is going to change the way we learn in post secondary institutions. Heck, it’s already happening.
Couple this news with some new and upcoming applications on the iPad that have major textbook publishers hocking their books digitally instead of in traditional student book stores and you’ve got yourself a first look at University 2.0. Sometimes I wish I was entering university today instead of ten years ago. I wonder if I would have been a better student with all these digital devices, probably not, but dare to dream.
