Today, Apple has updated its education-oriented iTunes U app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch with a few new important features. Notably, users are now able to take notes during lectures or presentations watched from inside the iTunes U app. Searching through all of the app’s materials and content sharing via Twitter, Mail, and Messages is also present.

iTunes U 1.2 now makes it easy to take notes while watching or listening to a lecture. This update also adds the ability to search within posts, assignments, notes, and materials — from any of your subscribed courses — using the improved Search feature in iTunes U. It is also now simple to share your favorite courses with friends using Twitter, Mail, and Messages.

 iTunes U 1.2 is available for free via the iTunes App Store.
