Online Education Redefined: Learning with iTunes U

Learning with iTunes U

iTunes U: Learning Redefined


I know it's been a while since iTunes U was introduced but I don't think a lot of people realize how great this program is.  I'm sure there are other similar programs but if you're already in (or thinking about joining) the Apple ecosystem, this is a great, FREE program.  I can't stress that enough...FREE!  I strongly believe knowledge is power and iTunes U gives you access to lots of online learning content.  This is a great addition for online education.

Online Learning Content


iTunes U opens the doors to a wealth of knowledge.  I know some people don't like to learn.  Once their finished with school or college, they're done.   Lifetime learning is great!  You can probably tell I'm getting excited while writing this...but I'll try not to get sidetracked.  When you look at how much it normally costs a person to get an education, iTunes U becomes pretty awesome.  Just think about what topics you like or would like to learn more about online.  Then search for it in iTunes U.  Hopefully, you will find courses or lectures that will help you.  When you think of FREE content, you probably think the schools aren't great...but they are.  You can get access to lectures from professors from Stanford, MIT, Yale, and more.  Try it!  I think you will enjoy the online education content.

iTunes U on Devices


The best part of iTunes U is that you can access it on various devices.  If you're on your Mac (or PC), you can open iTunes and access iTunes U.  If you're relaxing on the couch, you can access your iTunes  U files stored on your computer and watch them using your Apple TV.  You can access iTunes U on your iOS device.  Yes!  There is an app for that.  Apple created iTunes U and provided you with a myriad of ways to access the FREE online learning content.
