Apple launched iTunes U at the end of May. It’s a dedicated area inside the iTunes store. About 16 colleges and universities are currently publishing content in the U. According to an article in THE Journal
On the K-12 side of things, New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and Arizona State University (ASU) are providing a small amount of content for teachers and kids. NJIT is providing audio versions of public domain books, and ASU is providing a series called “Ask the Biologist,” tackling science issues for young learners. Apple would not comment on plans for expanded K-12 content in the future.
Prior to this initiative, I was already a fan of UC Berkeley’s Physics for Future Presidents lectures available in iTunes. I love the idea of listening in on college courses. And now, with this dedicated area in iTunes, I can find more for myself and possibly use this with students.
