Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, most of the countries around the globe have been forced to shut down their schools, in order to keep the students safe.
But Apple has showed, once again, their great compassion towards education, and released a new website which shows educators and teachers around the globe how to remotely create and share lessons, using the Apple products.
The website is available at here. Some of them are also available on their Twitter account.
Apple has shared their new idea and perspective by a tweet, from their account, @AppleEDU, which quotes: Today we’re launching Apple Education Learning Series, a growing collection of videos designed to help schools and educators make the most of #RemoteLearning on their Apple devices.

Starting from today, Apple has and will continue to release featured videos, explaining how to create different interactive lessons, to make the children more interested than ever.
The first videos available mostly focus on using the iPad’s built-in features, but also doable with an iPhone, explaining how to use the camera to scan documents, stay organized, how to use Markup and Voice Memos.
The second video briefly teachers how to using Group FaceTime feature, how to make basic presentations in Keynote and how to create a demo that can be shared.
The next video, we will be taught on how to use the Clips app from iOS. The app is not well known, but it encourages the students to share fun videos and educators to make essential videos for their classes.
Apple claims that in the future they will record and add more videos, and focus on helping the teachers understand better the concept and the ecosystem.
