PBS and local PBS stations from San Francisco (KQED), Washington, D.C. (WETA), Boston (WGBH), and New York (WNET) have begun offering videos and other educational resources on iTunes U. The initial offerings, which are available in the Beyond Campus section of iTunes U, include educational video clips, lectures, interviews, teacher’s guides, and other materials. “PBS and our leading stations are at the forefront of the digital education movement,” said Rob Lippincott, PBS’ Senior VP, Education. “A wonderful demonstration of this commitment is the breadth of state-of-the-art educational content available on iTunes U.” “iTunes U presents a tremendous opportunity for WGBH to expand the reach of our educational TV, radio and Web content to a global audience,” said Jon Abbott, President, WGBH. “We look forward to making even more of our programming available in the future by regularly adding new video clips and lectures to our presence on iTunes U.”
