Add a personal Apple ID as a contributor to a managed iTunes U course

You can use your personal Apple ID to create and edit managed iTunes U courses.

To use a personal Apple ID to create and edit managed iTunes U courses, your institution has to:

  • Have an active Apple School Manager (ASM) organization. 
  • Create and provide Managed Apple IDs to instructors.
  • Have an iTunes U public site.

Add a personal Apple ID as a contributor

Before you can add your personal Apple ID as a course contributor, follow these steps:

  1. Send a copy of each of your iTunes U courses to your Managed Apple ID.
  2. Sign into Course Manager or iTunes U for iOS, and accept the invitation with the Managed Apple ID.
  3. Link your iTunes U public site with your ASM organization.
  4. Invite (add) the personal Apple IDs of administrators or contributors in Public Site Manager to be course contributors on your managed iTunes U courses.

You can then invite your personal Apple ID as a course contributor. When your personal Apple ID is added as a course contributor, you can use it to teach courses that you created using ASM. 

Link your iTunes U public site to your ASM organization

Linking your iTunes U public site to your ASM organization only needs to be done once, by an IT admin. To link your iTunes U public site to your ASM organization, ask your IT admin to follow these steps:

  1. Go to school.apple.com.
  2. Sign in with your Administrator or Site Manager Managed Apple ID.
  3. Select iTunes U from the left pane.
  4. Click "Request to Use Public Site Manager." If you don't already have a Public Site, a new one will be created for you.
  5. Paste the URL of your iTunes U public site, if you have it available. (This step is optional.)
  6. Click Request.
