We are pleased to announce that as of August 13, 2009, Ithaca on iTunes U is officially part of the iTunes Store. While iTunes U has been up and running at IC for one year, we had to demonstrate to Apple that there was enough quality educational content in order to become part of the nearly 250 schools listed in the iTunes U index.
We'd like to thank all those who have contributed great content to iTunes U. To see how your colleagues are using this technology see the Ithaca College on iTunes U video produced by Digital Media Services. This video recently won a "Best of Category" Communication Award from the 2009 Special Interest Group for University and College Computing Services (SIGUCCS), a part of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). In addition, Musculoskeletal Examination and Evaluation, a collection of 50 clips produced in collaboration with Hillary Greenberger of the Department of Physical Therapy and ITS, is featured in the "Health and Medicine" category of iTunes U.
What is iTunes U?
iTunes U allows colleges and universities to distribute audio and video podcasts that can be downloaded to a computer and portable devices. Content is available free of charge from IC as well as many other colleges, universities, museums, public broadcasting, libraries and foundations. To see public content, launch the iTunes application, go to the iTunes Store and search for Ithaca College. To see public plus access-restricted content you must login at http://itunes.ithaca.edu with your email username and password.
How do I get an iTunes U course page?
Any faculty member, department or student organization can request an iTunes U page and make their content available to the public or restricted to the IC community. See http://itunes.ithaca.edu to request a course page.
