Bavatuesday has an interesting take on iTunes U – obviously not impressed.
Not only is iTunes a less than intuitive program to begin with, but it’s primarily a product and a brand, and I think we have had enough of them on campuses throughout the US over the last 10 years. I think it’s time to introduce applications more concerned with open, accessible, and easily re-purposed content, rather than cornering market share and selling units.
It is indeed interesting to note that many products, which do just one of the many things about online learning, seem to become the entire online learning experience.
Further, compare this thought with the post below.
