iTunes U is a part of the iTunes Store featuring free lectures, language lessons, audiobooks, and more, that you can enjoy on your iPod, iPhone, Mac or PC. Explore over 50,000 educational audio and video files from top universities, museums and public media organizations from around the world. With iTunes U, there's no end to what or where you can learn.
iTunes U also enables you to make recordings of your lectures or supplementary course materials available online only to the students in your course. These recordings (or “podcasts”) are accessed through Blackboard using the popular iTunes program, so it's easy to download content, play it on a computer, and transfer it to an iPod or iPhone.
iTunes U can contain audio and video files, as well as pdf files. Students can even subscribe to a podcast.
