This is a professional review of iTunes 11. You can’t really use an iPad or iDevice and not know how to use iTunes. It is assumed knowledge and yet we are only just getting some sound reviews of the sorts of skills sets and software knowledge we should have in order to use these devices effectively. A teacher would have disseminated that information clearly and well as they introduced the devices into the arena! iTunes 11 is set out quite differently from the other iTunes and basically you need to know how to navigate iTunes and what it does and then know how to sync your iPad to it so you can manage content. Some things can be done through iCloud but if you are not sure how to use that, it is better to go through iTunes and a computer first and then at least you have an easy fall back position if cloud syncing drops out , the iPad plays up or you temporarily confuse yourself. You will work it out! Some teachers would have access to technicians/ school services officers to do all of this for them. If you want to set up your own iPad the way you want it then it is better to learn it yourself. I confess when I first used an iPod Touch I was baffled by this whole approach. It made no sense to me. I mastered it one bit at a time and this video at least points you in the right direction to get started quickly. You can run iTunes on any computer, though, and without an iDevice. I have always used it on my Windows PC and I now sync my iPad to my Windows PC, so you can still benefit from iTunes just on a computer. If you still want to use the sidebar – it’s Ctrl S, but the new layout is much tidier andt suits the tablet interface better. YouTube is now a really good place to start looking for help with new devices and software.
