iTunes U

Digital Media Services provides faculty with assistance, in part, by recommending tools for capturing and encoding content for iTunes U for the Mac and PC. DMS also processes course page request forms for new iTunes U course pages. See the link to the right to complete the form.

Preparing files for iTunes U

iTunes U requires that files prepared for upload are in a specific format. Video must be encoded or exported using H.264 (mpeg-4) compression with one of the following file extensions:

  • .mp4
  • .m4v
  • .mov

Audio prepared for iTunes U must be either:

  • AAC
  • MP3

Note: There will be a new way to host video inside Sakai.  You may find it much easier to manage, store, and deliver your video and audio using the new tool instead of iTunes U.  Please contact us for more information.
