iWork for the iPad



It’s the most powerful presentation app ever designed for a mobile device. And it’s the same innovative app from iWork, completely reworked for iPad and Multi-Touch. So you can do everything on iPad with a tap or drag of your finger — from creating your first slide to presenting your work.
Tutorial video from Metacafe:



It’s the most beautiful word processor ever designed for a mobile device. Using just your fingers, you’re a writer one minute and a designer the next. And the documents you create — newsletters, reports, brochures, and flyers — are way beyond words.
Tutorial video of Pages:


It’s the most powerful spreadsheet app ever designed for a mobile device. You can create tables and charts, add photos and graphics, and enter and edit data — all with your fingers. And it feels so natural, you might just forget you’re making spreadsheets

Quick Intro to iTunes U

Lectures are only the beginning.

While iTunes U is ideal for accessing and replaying lectures, it’s also great for sharing other types of content — including slideshows, PDFs, books, films, exhibit tours, and audiobooks.
(Media formats supported include AAC, MP3, MPEG-4, PDF, and ePub.)
Biologist David Robinson, for example, takes students on a virtual visit to the Galapagos Islands in his video for Open University.
In the Beyond Campus section of iTunes U, students and faculty can access a wealth of content from distinguished entities such as MoMA, the New York Public Library, Public Radio International, and PBS stations.
