[Micronet] Education-focused Apple announcements today

Ian Crew
Hi all:

FYI, check out http://www.apple.com/education/ for an overview of today's education-related announcements, and http://engadget.search.aol.com/search?q=apple for a few more details and hands-on videos....

My 2 cents:

I'll be very interested to see how this all plays out--it seems that it has some potential to be disruptive (in a good way) to the textbook market.  I'm also curious about the technologies behind the new iTunesU features allowing VLE-like capabilities. Wondering how capable those things are, and how they're supporting them on the back end (what with FERPA and all).....

Cheers,

Ian

Hi: would someone mind summarizing these for me. I can't get the videos to play mostly what I want to know is do they talk about disability at all and how they address access. I am betting they do smile

Hi Lucy:


FWIW, I don't recall having seen anything about accessibility in the coverage I've seen so far.

Cheers,

Ian
