iTunes U app

iTunes U is now an iPad (and iOS universal) app, available for free in the iPad App Store. The app was released earlier today and feature heavily in Apple’s education-focused live event this morning.

During the event Apple cited some impressive numbers for iTunes U, including these:

    • Over 1,000 universities and colleges around the world are using iTunes U now.
    • There are over 500,000 pieces of audio and video material available through iTunes U right now, which is the largest catalog of free educational content in one place

The new iPad app looks very good. I was aware of iTunes U before today, but hadn’t really appreciated the range of quality courses available from some blue-chip universities, including MIT, Yale, Stanford, Duke, and The Open University.

iTunes U K12

There’s also a K-12 section in the iTunes U app. The content there is divided by state and looks a bit sparse right now – but hopefully following today’s announcements we’ll see the content here increase soon.

Here’s an App Store link for iTunes U; it’s a free app and a universal app designed to run on both iPad and iPhone.
