Great content you cannot delete
Just installed on a new device & it loaded courses I took 5 years ago. I have dozens of "assignments" and notifications for courses from 2012! That was fine except that due to bad layout it seems like you can't delete anything, and even if I wanted to keep the old courses I think I'd have to manually click through dozens of assignments to get rid of them.
Fun fact: when you view the library in "Shelf" layout (iOS 10.3, iPad4) the "Edit" button & menus are obscured behind the top navigation bar, so it seems like there's no way to delete anything! The grid view works fine. Pls change scroll view insets.
Content is generally good, and it's cool that this is becoming more of a teacher's tool than a student's tool. Will go look for new stuff now...
Keeps Getting Better!
The more recent updates have turned iTunes U into one of the best teaching tools I've seen! One thing though that still needs some work is the built-in PDF annotation tools. If Apple would match them to the built-in iOS 10 mark up annotation tools it would be almost perfect! This would add the ability of shape recognition, the loupe, and signature annotations. Students could get arrows, perfect boxes, comment bubbles, stars, etc. to help make their assignments even nicer before handing them in. Please Apple, add the iOS 10 Mark Up annotations to the iTunes U built-in annotation tool.
Needs certificate feature
I would really like to see a certficate or Class completion printout you could generate from the grades page. As of now I have to do everything manually one by one in a PDF. If you could check mark all the students that passed and share to printer and have them all print this would be amazing!
