* sports events.

These can be played on your computer, iPod, or other portable device.

The University is launching a public iTunes U site. The public iTunes U site will provide the University with a dedicated presence in iTunes, allowing a worldwide audience to view and download our digital academic content.

This is a great idea! Virtually every college student uses iTunes, and this is an excellent way of reaching them. If a student missed a class or was interested in something that happened on campus, having access to those videos would be of great help. Using iTunes to reach students and faculty is a nice incorporation of technology into the classroom.
