List of Public iTunes Sites

Update: Version 5   June 2008    view earlier versions

Apple has now added universities in the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia to the iTunes U list of schools now offering content. iTunes U now has more than 60 colleges around the world (mostly in North America) plus other types of educational institutions sharing audio & video through the iTunes U portal.

Since Apple launched the version of the iTunes Music Store with an iTunes U link and listed the original 16 colleges last year (NJIT was one of the initial 16 schools), schools have been slower to join the list.Perhaps that was why they opened up the iTunes U area to "educational" organizations that are not universities this year. You can find those offerings in the "Beyond Campus" area including the NY Public Library, the Museum of Modern Art, the US Holocaust Memorial Museum and others.

The updated, unofficial, incomplete list below is of schools that have partnered with Apple, Inc. to use iTunes U.

If you know of another school that has a public presence on iTunes U, please add a link with a comment at the bottom of this entry and I'll add it to the list.

NOTE: These are public sites, not those schools that have podcasts available in the iTunes Music Store, but only as password-protected content for their own students.

To open these sites requires the free iTunes software which allows you free access to play or download content. Apple has a simple video on the basics of using iTunes for podcasts.

I welcome your comments below with the URLs to other schools with public access to iTunes U.

This list was first posted in January 2007 when I worked at NJIT and we launched NJIT on iTunes. Though I am no longer at NJIT or involved in iTunes U, I try to keep up on schools that offer a public face in iTunes U both to see what they are offering and to download materials. Although a lot of content is specific to a school (admissions, sports etc.), there are also public course materials and speakers that have a much broader appeal and real educational value.

Free the knowledge!
