What is iTunes U?

Apple now features free downloadable material (audio and video) provided by many universities and accessed through the 'iTunes U' section of the iTunes store.

In October 2008 the University launched its iTunesU site, from which you can download educational multimedia resources free of charge. There is a wide choice of both video and audio, which has grown on a month-by-month basis.

To access this site you will need to have iTunes software installed on your computer which is available for Macintosh and Windows.

Why is Cambridge University participating in iTunes U?

Cambridge University wants to share its content as widely as possible. We want to help more members of the public get access to the excellent diverse resources that we have, and help them learn more about topics that interest them.

What kinds of content are available?

Material is gathered from lecture series, public talks, news podcasts, public videos, etc.

Do I need an iPod or a Mac to listen to files housed in iTunes U?

No. Any media player that can play .mp4 video or AAC audio files will work. You must go through iTunes to download the content but can then use the media player of your choice with the downloaded files. Apple has free versions of iTunes available for Macs running 10.3 and up and PCs running Microsoft Windows XP and up.

How do I submit a podcast?

Requests should be submitted to digitalcommunications@admin.cam.ac.uk.

Where does the submission request go?

Cambridge University's site on iTunes U is populated by the Office of External Affairs and Communications.
