Step 6: Creating a Post
The course Posts panes display the posts, assignments, and discussions added to the current course.
Use posts to add your voice and context to a course. For example, a post can contain instructions, explanations, summaries, and context around a specific topic and associated assignment (resource). When new posts are created, iTunes U sends a push notification for the first new post or assignment within each five minute period. Push notifications trigger a course refresh so the new post is immediately visible.
Discussions allow students to communicate directly with you and other participants in the course. For example, a student might ask questions about the course or specific posts and assignments.
