I have worked with iTunes U in the past as well as their dedicated classroom app. It has a lot of advantages, especially in cases where a teacher has access to a classroom set of iPads. It offers features such as the ability to mark assignments in app or write feedback and return them to students. It allows you to pull material of all sorts from a very wide database which includes entire courses sponsored by schools such as Harvard and MIT or districts such as Richmond and Surrey. It’s biggest drawback is that it is primarily useful within the iOS ecosystem. Now that I have been exposed to other options such as Edmodo and FreshGrade I will certainly be considering their benefits as cross-platform services for BYOD environments.
