Ratings and Reviews
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!
Best app ever invented on any platform
I mentioned this app while in grad school interview for an anesthesia program. The lady in the panel looked around the room and also vouched for this app. Needless to say, I got in and for years prior while preparing for that amazing journey, I used iTunes U for organic chemistry and biochemistry refresher courses. I can't say it enough, BEST APP EVER INVENTED. Yaro
Needs an Apple TV App
This is a wonderful app that I have been able to use well for learning new things. However, since so much of the content consists of video, This needs an Apple TV app.
With an Apple TV app, I and other learners can watch the lecture on the Apple TV, while we use our iPhones and iPads to take notes, follow along with the readings, and communicate with other students.
