The iTunes U Collections will be moved to podcast Apple
All the contents of iTunes U Collections will be moved on the Apple Podcast within the next month, after the release of iTunes 12.7.
With the release of iTunes 12.7, Apple will remove iTunes U from the iTunes app on the mac and PC, dragging all the contents directly in the podcast. The iTunes U app will continue to function as always on iOS and Apple TV. With this innovation, users will no longer download content to iTunes U on Mac or PC, but will be able to hear and view the podcast from the special section that will be created in the new update. To access other content, such as drawings, quizzes, and ebooks, users will need to use the iTunes U app on iOS and Apple TV.
The various universities that have created such content does not need to make any changes, since everything will be run directly and automatically from Apple. The only aspect to bear in mind relates to the categories, given that in the podcast could be different from the previous ones in iTunes U. The content creators, iTunes U can manually change these categories. In addition, Apple is inviting all the institutions to convert ePub files to PDF. More details are available here.
