Crystal Clear Directions!
This course is a great and thorough introduction to iTunes U. Your friendly demeanor and expert knowledge have assured my that I am ready to start creating iTunes U courses. Thank you for your expertise. See you in Chicago!
This is an amazing resource! It makes creating an iTunes course extraordinarily simple! Kudos to the author. I couldn't resist changing my strategy from creating an ePub to creating an iTunes course because there are some incredible advantages that I just wasn't aware of before now. Thanks for the clear, concise directions and tips.
