Comments from some of those who selected iTunes or iTunesU as one of their Top Tools

“Brilliant collection of courses. There’s a whole series of inspiring lesson ideas for educators that I’m working my way through.” 2015

“Learning designers are often addicted to learning and what better way to fulfill your obsession than to listen to podcasts while exercising, driving and doing household chores? I listen to podcasts on brain science, design, business, writing, spirituality, technology, pop-culture, TED talks and stories from This American Life. Story podcasts are great for road trips.” Connie Malamed, 2014
