iTunes Resources

More than 800 universities have active iTunes U sites including Stanford, Yale, MIT, Oxford, and UC Berkeley.  iTunes U allows you to upload and share educational content which is really cool.  In the Beyond Campus section of iTunes U, students and teachers can also access content from distinguished entities such as MoMA, the New York Public Library, Public Radio International, and PBS stations.

These amazing resources are great for higher education or adults, but in our K-8 district, I promote the iTunes store to teachers as a resource for rich, multimedia content.  You don’t need to stay within the more typical ‘higher ed’ content within iTunes U… You can find audio AND video podcasts such: Reading Rockets (Meet the Author, Meet the Experts, Watch and Learn), Lit2Go, StoryNory, How Stuff Works, Aesop’s Fables, Nova, Why? The Science Show for Kids, and more.  The easiest way to sift through the ton of resources is to simply type in a keyword search for a topic and you will get results in any/all categories in which there are resources.  I choose Podcasts (which are available in audio or video) but there are also books, apps, and other formats available to you… Enjoy!

    Thanks for this reminder about some of the great resources through iTunesU. I just went to revisit and found that Lit2Go has collections of Fairy Tales. This might be just what I need to encourage my students to re-learn their fairy tales because they are the source of so many allusions in literature and life. Everyone is always looking for the “golden egg,” right?

    Thanks for your post. What I want to say is that when searching for a good online electronics go shopping, look for a site with comprehensive information on critical factors such as the privacy statement, security details, any payment methods, and also other terms along with policies. Continually take time to look at help and also FAQ segments to get a better idea of how a shop functions, what they are capable of doing for you, and just how you can make the most of the features.
