ITunes U (;__;) [Tears of Joy]

    I'm always excited to share interesting material I come across with everyone I can, so let this thread be the third installment in "Cool stuff I find on the internet - Physics Forum Edition".

    A lot of you might have heard of/made use of resources like MIT OpenCourseware, which according to wikipedia (because I'm lazy) is: an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to put all of the educational materials from its undergraduate- and graduate-level courses online, partly free and openly available to anyone, anywhere, by the end of the year 2007.

    A lot of other universities have followed suit (UC Berkley, Yale, Stanford,etc...) which is great; you can become a student of multiple top ranked universities, minus the degree.

    The beauty of iTunes U is that they've gathered up nearly all of the online resources these universities and colleges have put up on the web into a one-stop shop location. You can download either lecture recordings (.mp3) or lecture videos (.mp4, .avi, .mov) at very high speeds and have them organized in an iTunes U sidebar folder.

    Take them with you on your iPod Touch or iPhone, watch/listen to them at home. To sum it all up, it's fraking amazing.

    Check it out, download iTunes if you don't have it (or update to the latest version). iTunes store -> click on the iTunes U header button, and there you go.

    One more thing



    If you didn't come across the other threads and you're looking for some cool **** to peruse, check out these threads.

    Very cool Monocerotis. Thank you for that! Tired of listening to all the same old lectures in my library.
