The free iTunes U app gives you access to the world's largest online catalog of free educational content on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch--more than 500,000 lectures, videos, books, and other resources on thousands of subjects from Algebra to Zoology from education and cultural institutions in 26 countries--including Stanford, Yale, MIT, Oxford, UC Berkeley, MoMA, the New York Public Library, and the Library of Congress. Now in version 1.2 you can take notes while watching or listening to video and audio content, and the notes will automatically remember where you were when you took them. (And the playback speed can be changed with a tap.) In addition you can now search among and within all the courses in your iTunes U library by swiping down to reveal the Search icon, tapping it, and entering what you're looking for. You can also share your notes and latest course discoveries with friends using Twitter, Mail, Messages, and Printing via the Share button.
