The University of Southern Florida is joining the growing number of educational institutions that are utilizing Apple technology to make learning more efficient for its students. As part of the program, the university will provide all of its student athletes with a 13-inch MacBook Pro, allowing them to do schoolwork from anywhere. But they didn’t stop there — the school will also be taking advantage of Apple’s iTunes U.
“The goal is to create an anywhere, anytime learning environment for each of our student-athletes,” said USF Director of Athletics Doug Woolard. “Apple’s MacBook Pro will assist in providing comprehensive academic support services while accommodating the demanding practice and travel schedules of our student-athletes.”
USF will be adding lectures to iTunes U so the students, using the MacBook Pro, can keep up-to-date wherever they may be. iTunes U is an area of the iTunes Store dedicated to free education programs.
