Needs more tax lectures, especially on international tax. Also, the video lectures and podcasts only play with the play screen open. It’d be great if the videos would play like an audio file so that I can use my phone in other ways while still listening, instead of stopping when I close the lecture screen.

I would really like to see a certficate or Class completion printout you could generate from the grades page. As of now I have to do everything manually one by one in a PDF. If you could check mark all the students that passed and share to printer and have them all print this would be amazing!

I mentioned this app while in grad school interview for an anesthesia program. The lady in the panel looked around the room and also vouched for this app. Needless to say, I got in and for years prior while preparing for that amazing journey, I used iTunes U for organic chemistry and biochemistry refresher courses. I can't say it enough, BEST APP EVER INVENTED. Yaro

Apple you need to update this app badly. There is so much potential in this app but it can’t be utilized because of the old interface. Please make it more intuitive so that going through courses is easy. Just like other iOS 13 apps iTunes u needs an update.

A little hard for beginners

Classes are organized in a way that is confusing and I end up going to the wrong classes. It should be orginized like PowerSchool, but a bit different to give it its own unique design. I’ve been trying to figure out how to work this app and I’ve been really struggling. Please make this less confusing!
