One Billion Downloads at iTunes U

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has announced that downloads of iTunes U content have topped one billion. iTunes U doesn’t get much mainstream press, but it could be one of Apple’s most important projects, hosting over 2,500 courses (and thousands more private courses) from over 1,200 colleges and universities, plus another 1,200 K-12 schools and districts. Some iTunes U courses have as many as 250,000 students enrolled in them, and over 60 percent of the iTunes U app downloads originate from outside the United States. Put simply, iTunes U is an astonishing educational resource.favicon follow link
