iTunes U has sooo much stuff! Over the past couple years, I’ve been really jazzed about online learning. Some of the institutions and corporations I respect most, from the New York Public Library and Google, the Smithsonian and MIT, are making information available freely available through the Internet. Some interesting public-private partnerships have made great contributions to web based education, like the Google Book Search project, and iTunes U.
Dozens of universities and a few libraries and museums make videos and podcasts that they’ve created available through iTunes. Among the lectures on physics, math and classics, I’ve listened to Calvin Trillin speaking at Stanford, Alice Waters at Yale, Jose Andres at the Culinary Institute of America. I made a brief tutorial on how to find culinary movies and mp3s on iTunes U. I’m wrestling with Camtasia a bit, so please use the comments to let me know what need improving, what’s hard to see, hear, etc.
