Rumor: Apple January event to focus on iTunes University and Apple in eduction

Clayton Morris has chimed in on the January media event and what Apple may have in store for us.

  • This event will focus on iTunes University and Apple in education
  • This initiative has been in the making for years.
  • The announcement will be small in size but large in scope: a big announcement in a demure space.
  • I expect at least two large project announcements as they relate to Apple in education.
  • Steve Jobs was intimately involved with this project before his passing. He gave a hat tip to the textbook side of this project in the Isaacson biography.
  • This will not be a hardware-related announcement.

It was previously speculated that Apple may be holding a special iBooks-related event, which could definitely hold true in respect to textbooks as Morris has outlined. Check out his whole post via the link below.

Rumor: Apple January event to focus on iTunes University and Apple in eduction


Smart move! The iPad has become the de facto standard tablet where mindshare is concerned. Many people see this moving into the classroom but it currently lack specific tools that really make it ideal for classwork. I see this being a way for Apple to take back the classroom and the university, a battle they initially lost when computers were first used and taught in schools during the 90s.

Rumor, Apple is holding an event to tell everyone to stop guessing about what their events are about!
