The iTunes franchise has quietly launched a totally free new section in their store, nestled between Podcasts and iPod Games.
It’s called iTunes U, and it contains (free) video and (free) audio courtesy of major universities, PBS and cultural institutions (like MoMA), effectively allowing you to sit in on classes and conferences all over the US. University of California Berkeley in particular has a huge selection of lectures posted.
It might be the robber baron business model, but for now I’m giving them three gold stars.
Have you tried it? Is iTunes U the new Wikipedia for time suckage?
