Go to the iTunes U Course Manager and log in with your Apple ID. Once on your dashboard, you can edit and create new courses. For more, see Apple's iTunes U Course Manager support page.

There are two types of courses:

  • In-session courses are taught in accordance with a set calendar, like a normal course held in person. They must have defined starting and ending dates.
  • Self-paced courses have no defined schedule or starting and ending dates. It is helpful to suggest a course duration so that someone taking the course can keep up with it.

Click Create New Course and fill out the form that appears. All fields are required. If your course contains any explicit material, select the appropriate checkbox.

If you make your course publicly available and wish to avoid unwanted messages, disable course discussions.

By default, your course is hidden from public view; its URL may be distributed to selected students via email. To find the URL, click the gear icon next to the course on your dashboard.
