The University of Texas at Austin on iTunes U is a collection of audio, video and educational course materials from schools, departments, libraries and other programs across the university. This content is available free of charge through Apple’s iTunes software and on mobile IOS devices. For faculty planning to use a great deal of media in their classes, iTunes U could be a place to store those files and make them available to students throughout the world.
- iTunes U is a collection of free resources from colleges and universities across the U.S. and around the world.
- If your content in iTunes U is made public and listed in the UTexas domain, you have unlimited storage for your media. However, there is a 2GB file size limit for each individual file.
- iTunes U is only accessible through an iOS device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) or from a desktop or laptop computer running MacOS or Windows.
- iTunes U is only a content repository, it tracks basic viewing statistics but will neither track views of individual students nor provide opportunities for assessment like Canvas.
- Content posted in iTunes U under the UTexas domain is public. All files posted are available to anyone using iTunes U including users outside of UT unless you use the iTunesU Course Manager, which requires all students in the course to have an IOS device such as an iPad or iPhone using the iTunes U App.
