Apple offers free iTunes U content

Apple has announced the launch of iTunes U, a new dedicated area of the iTunes Store offering free content from top US colleges and universities, including Stanford, UC Berkley, Duke, and MIT. The content includes course lectures, language lessons, lab demonstrations, sports highlights, and campus tours. “iTunes U makes it easy for anyone to access amazing educational material from many of the country’s most respected colleges and universities,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of iTunes. “Education is a lifelong pursuit and we’re pleased to give everyone the ability to download lectures, speeches and other academic content for free.” Stanford Provost John Etchemendy added, “From its earliest days, Stanford has sought to serve the public by sharing the knowledge generated by our faculty and students. Our partnership with Apple and iTunes U provides a creative and innovative way to engage millions of people with our teaching, learning and research and share the experience of intellectual exploration and discovery that defines our university.”

I am an instructor at the University of Missouri and I’ve used it for years. It was not previously available to just any university but now I believe it’s open to all universities.  However some schools, like mine, will not publish their itunes offerings for all to use. You have to be a student.
