Apple brings iBooks and iTunes U educational tools to more than 50 new countries


It's no secret that Apple likes its products to be a big part of the educational sector, not just in the US, but all across the world. With that in mind, the Cupertino-based outfit today is broadening the reach of some of its education-focused software, announcing that more than 50 countries are gaining access to iBooks Textbooks and iTunes U Course Manager. With the addition of these new markets, which include ones in Asia, Europe and Latin America, Apple's now making Textbooks and Course Manager accessible in 51 and 70 countries, respectively. As you might expect, Apple Senior Vice President Eddy Cue is thrilled to bring these tools to more people, stating that he believes things like iBooks Textbooks "represent a monumental shift in learning because they engage multiple capacities of each individual student."
