The world’s largest online catalogue of free education content.

Learn a new language. Study Shakespeare. Discover the cosmos. It’s all possible on iTunes U, home to more than 500,000 free lectures, videos, books and other resources on thousands of subjects. Among the hundreds of colleges, universities and elementary and high schools on iTunes U, you’ll find Stanford, Yale, MIT, Oxford and UC Berkeley, along with other distinguished institutions such as MoMA, the New York Public Library and more. You can also experience courses created by your instructor and sent only to the students in your class.

All the materials for a course.
Just a tap away.

Whether you’re taking a European history course in your spare time, learning Spanish in high school or majoring in molecular biology at a university, you now have a powerful tool to help you get the most out of your classes. The iTunes U app expands the classroom experience by putting all the materials for a course — audio and video, new iBooks textbooks for iPad1 and other books, a syllabus and class assignments, posts from the instructor, PDFs, presentations and more — just a tap away on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.2

Better notes make better students.

Take some of the work out of homework with a note-taking feature like no other. While watching video, listening to audio or reading a book, just tap the Add Note button and start typing what you want to remember. The iTunes U app keeps track of where in the audio, video or text you took each note. So finding it later — and recalling the context of the note — is easy, too.

Share information in an instant.

Send course information or class notes to a friend with just a few taps through Twitter, Mail or Messages. Just tap the Share button and choose how you want to share. You can also print a copy for yourself.

Keep up with your course wherever you are.

When you take an iTunes U course, you’ll always have the most current information at your fingertips. Right in the app, you can tap to listen to the most recent lecture or review the latest presentation. Stay on top of your assignments and check them off as you complete them. And when an instructor sends a message or creates a new assignment, you’ll receive a push notification with the new information.

Everything works together.

iTunes U integrates with iBooks and other apps to make it easy to keep up with your coursework. Just tap a book from your assignment and start reading the assigned chapter. If your assignment includes watching part of a video, you can tap a link to go straight to the correct segment. And iTunes U keeps your documents, notes, highlights and bookmarks up to date on all your devices.
