iTunes U for K-12

Pretty exciting news came my way via Kelly Dumont.

iTunes U, a wonderful free service full of rich content from universities and community colleges across the nation, is now spreading to K-12!

Kelly has a great post on his blog where he talks a little bit about the program.

"I believe this project will be somewhat of a game changer. Here K12 ed will have a central gathering place for resources, be they audio, video, text-based, etc." - Kelly Dumont


In order to check out some of the schools and state programs who were part of the the launch you can find the K-12 link within iTunes. After launching iTunes and the iTunes Store all you need to do is click on "iTunes U"

Then click on "K-12"...

After you have navigated your way through you can select one of the schools or organizations from the list. For right now the list is short but I am sure the list and interface will grow with time.

Here is a look at Michigan's MILearning page...

While you are checking out the K-12 content you should definitely take some time to explore the university content. Neat stuff!
