iTunes U

Earlier this month Apple released an update to one of iTunes best kept secrets iTunes U. Since mid 2007 iTunes U has provided free access to thousands of university audio and video lectures, the updated application extends functionality allowing educators to attach supporting media such as syllabi and notes to lectures. The iTunes U update also integrates closely with the newly released iBooks 2 which features eBook textbooks. Use of the new iTunes U application requires an IOS device, but anyone with an iTunes account can download and enjoy the audio and video lectures as podcasts.
