Apple has announced an interesting development for US Universities, the iPhone Developer University Program.
The iPhone Developer University Program is a free program designed for higher education institutions looking to introduce curriculum for developing iPhone or iPod touch applications. The University Program provides a wealth of development resources, sophisticated tools for testing and debugging, and the ability to share applications within the same development team. Institutions can also submit applications for distribution in the App Store.
Alas this is not a program(me) to develop learning applications for the iPhone, but merely a programme to teach students how to develop applications.
