So Apple’s aim here is to bring interactivity to textbooks via the iPad. Students will be able to read notes, watch videos, complete quizzes and many other tasks.

Starting from Monday students will be able to purchase textbooks from around $15USD for their iPad instead of having the physical paper copy.

An update to iTunes has also been released to improve the wireless sync of e-books to iOS devices.
