Learning doesn't stop once you leave the classroom or shut down your desktop computer. Laptops, smart phones, and mobile devices make it possible to access a wealth of online educational content while you're on the go. iTunes U makes that educational content easy to find and easy to use on any computer or mobile device that supports iTunes.
iTunes U is an Apple service that enables Pitt faculty and staff to place free educational media online. For example, you can use iTunes U to distribute a video of your classroom lecture, a speech from a visiting colleague, a profile of a researcher from your department, an audio interview with another expert from your field, PDFs of your course materials, and much more.
Participation in iTunes U is first and foremost based on the need to share academic content, so most content on iTunes U will be provided by academic faculty and units.
