Ever since iTunes University we've all seen this coming, but it is interesting to finally see the lid removed from Apple's "Virtual U" patent application (it's interesting to me that not even the name is original, as longtime ed tech devotees will recognize the name from a Canadian project in the 1990s (and several other projects worldwide more recently)). The Apple patent is sort of an 'iTunes for courses' with the familiar 'cover flow' display and 'ringed binders' of course materials. The original patent was filed in October, 2011.
