Welcome to iTunes U for Padpilot HD
Your courses designed by you and delivered to your students in one convenient place.
Now it’s easier than ever to have all your courses on an iPad. You get to distribute your training materials in a new way and your students get a rich, interactive learning experience using the free iTunes U app for your iPad.
Your Course In One App
From the iTunes U app, students can read books, play videos and view presentations. They will see a list of assignments for their courses and check them off as they complete them.
When instructors need to send a message or create a new task, students will receive a push notification containing the new information.
Integrates with iBooks
Padpilot HD iBooks for ATPL can be assigned to your course and put into course modules. With iTunes U, you can access your books directly from within the iTunes U app. Students simply tap them to start reading the assigned chapter or a specific section of a book.
Notes taken in iBooks are consolidated for easy reviewing in iTunes U plus if you require a student to watch a video, one tap can take them straight to it.
What’s In A Course
Your iTunes U course will include all the things you would have in a typical course; theoretical material, course structure and study guides which you can print out from within the app.
You can include Keynote presentations and will have access to the Padpilot Learning System to monitor your student’s progress. To assist their studies you can also add additional content, internet links, iBooks and apps from the App Store.
Building a Course
Using iTunes Course Manager you can create a complete course using all of your digital material.
On-screen instructions guide you through the process and everything you upload is hosted by Apple and available to anyone taking the course. You can easily amend or modify your course and up to five instructors can collaborate on a single course.
Delivering the Course
To get your course to your students, simply invite them to enrol in it by sending them a code or URL that allows them to request enrolment.
This request will then be authorised by you to grant them access. This method of course distribution is private and only available to students who have signed up for the course and the instructors that have been given permission to be editors.
