We've covered free stuff on the iTunes Store before, including educational material, but Apple has decided to make it official: today they introduced iTunes U, a new part of the iTunes Store (launch iTunes U in iTunes). iTunes U is an initiative to provide higher education institutions a mechanism for distributing digital content to students. Many of the original iTunes educational content providers are there: Stanford, UC Berkeley, and MIT (that last one is adapted from MIT OpenCourseWare, a _floss favorite).
Digging into the iTunes U collection, I found some winners:
- Phil 7: Existentialism in Literature and Film - from UC Berkeley (the intro lecture is currently the iTunes U top download)
- Modern Art History - from Otis College of Art and Design
- Elementary Greek - from Concordia Seminary
Time to get learnin', people!
