    Apple Sends Out Invitations for Education Special Event in New York


    AppleInsider reports today that Apple has sent out invitations to a special media event on January 19 at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. Billed as “an education announcement in the Big Apple”, the event is widely thought to be based around an upgrade to iBooks centering around education and digital textbook publishing. Specifically, it is thought that the event will focus on the expansion of iTunes U, a currently existing service that provides free educational content. According to AppleInsider, Steve Jobs was closely involved with the project before his death, even telling his official biographer Walter Isaacson that he was very interested in reinventing textbooks, as well as reinventing photography and TVs. AppleInsider adds that the audience is expected to be primarily made up of people from the publishing world, and that the event as a whole is thought to be more industry-focused than consumer-focused.
