CU-Boulder Launches iTunes U Presence
Learn anytime and anywhere
Information Technology Services (ITS) and University Communications are pleased to announce the launch of a campuswide iTunes U presence for CU-Boulder. Apple’s iTunes U is the educational extension of iTunes and offers multimedia content from hundreds of colleges and universities across the country. With CU-Boulder on iTunes U, course materials, lectures, seminars, and all kinds of valuable information are available online nationwide. Users can browse content and download it to their Mac computers or PCs, regardless of their location. They can then listen to and view that content on their computers or transfer the content to an iPod for listening or viewing on the go.
Apple shares common goals with education—to advance teaching, learning, and research through innovation, and to engage and empower students. Students, instructors and staff, expect a campus environment that accommodates their digital lifestyle, adapts to their individual learning and teaching needs, and encourages collaboration and teamwork. iTunes U provides a way to meet all these expectations.
iTunes U brings the power of the iTunes Store to education, making it simple to distribute information to students and faculty — or to lifelong learners all over the world. With an iTunes U site, the University of Colorado at Boulder has a single home for all the digital content created or curated by educators, which can then be easily downloaded and viewed on any Mac, PC, iPod, or iPhone. This online service is without cost to those uploading and downloading material. Users can access educational content 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
If you’re a member of the University of Colorado Boulder campus community, you can easily contribute to iTunes U. Once you’ve reviewed the content guidelines and copyright policies, you can request to submit content and upload your files to our content repository. After the request is reviewed and approved by University Communications your collection will be published for the world to see and download.
