iTunes U

iTunes U allows instructors and project managers to easily post digital media (e.g., audio, video or pdf files of lectures, interviews, etc.) on the web.

Students and project members can then use iTunes U to easily access this content at any time or "subscribe" and automatically download media as it is added. They can browse and download the files to their computers, and they can listen to and view the media on their computers or transfer it to their iPods to listen to or view it wherever they go.
