I’m particularly interested in seeing, experiencing “as a student,” and analyzing the way iTunesU provides and manages both course “to dos” and assignments. In the graduate courses taught last spring and this fall/spring semester for Western Montana CSPD the University of Montana (working with VisionNet of Montana for videoconferencing bridging), a “checklist app” or website which I could use in my course is something I’ve both wanted and needed. We used Edmodo last year and the Subtext iPad app, but neither (from what I know at this point) can provide the sort of task-based checklist features of iTunesU.
If you’ve taken and/or designed courses in iTunesU, how have you found this task/assignment checklist feature? How does it compare to other learning management systems you’ve used, either as a student or teacher/instructor? Are you aware of standalone checklist apps or websites which can be used for multiple students in a course? I’d like something which (ideally) has an optional Google account login, is free, and lets students both see and individually manage the tasks / to-do’s they have each week in their course.
