What is iTunes U?
Indiana University uses Apple's iTunes U to make
podcasts readily available to students, faculty, and staff
at IU. Using iTunes U, you can access course content and university
information from within iTunes. The minimum system
requirements for iTunes U are the same as those for iTunes, and are
listed on the iTunes
download page (click
Windows Requirements or
Macintosh Requirements to switch between platforms).
To use iTunes U Courses with iTunes Course Manager, you must have a valid Apple ID; to create an account or for details, see the Apple ID home page.
IU instructors and Oncourse site owners can publish podcasts to iTunes U by adding the iTunes U tool to their Oncourse sites.
Note: For policy information on podcast content at Indiana University, refer to University Information Policy Office (UIPO) University-wide IT Policies. In particular, see Appropriate Use of Information Technology Resources.
Via IU's iTunes U launch page, IU students, faculty, and staff (and some external audiences, such as potential students and alumni) can log in to access podcasts.
Note: Two types of iTunes U sites are available at Indiana University. iTunes U Private sites require IU Network ID authentication and are accessible via Oncourse; these sites are set up by course instructors and cannot be seen by the general public. IU has also launched an iTunes U Public site, accessible via the iTunes Store and searchable by users worldwide without authentication. To make your podcast available to the public, add the iTunes U tool to your Oncourse site, and then fill out and submit the iTunes U Request Form. For details about iTunes U Public, see Courses and Collections in iTunes U Public.
