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

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

Before you begin

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

  • Have an active Apple School Manager 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 Apple School Manager 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 Apple School Manager. 

Link your iTunes U public site to your Apple School Manager organization

Linking your iTunes U public site to your Apple School Manager organization only needs to be done once, by an IT admin. To link your iTunes U public site to your Apple School Manager  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.
