Click here for the update to this post.
Since then, they have also opened up the iTunes U area to "educational" organizations that are not universities. You can find podcasts in the "Beyond Campus" area from the NY Public Library, the Museum of Modern Art, the US Holocaust Memorial Museum and others.
Though I am no longer at NJIT or involved in iTunes U, I try to keep up on schools that offer a public face in iTunes U both to see what they are offering and to download materials. Although a lot of content is specific to a school (admissions, sports etc.), there are also public course materials and speakers that have a much broader appeal and real educational value.
This list is not official, definitive or complete - but I'll keep at it here until one that is appears.
If you know of a school that has a public presence on iTunes U, please add a link with a comment at the bottom of this entry and I'll add it to the list. NOTE: These are public sites, not those schools that have podcasts available in the iTunes Music Store but only as password-protected content for their own students. Of course, all these sites will require the free iTunes software to access and play or download content.
Free the knowledge!

Just wanted to say I really enjoyed hearing what you had to say today at DLAAB, and I think your blog is a great resource. I'm also really happy to know what the 35 is for in Serendipity35.
Thanks - for others who are curious about the 35, click the link and read last year's 2/2 & 2/4 posts.
And check out John's blog at Rider University http://media.rider.edu/blog/
Hah, glad someone else was curious about the 35 thing.
amazing in every detail thanks 4 the info !!!
We've been compiling a list in house at USF for a few months. I've combined it with your list and posted it on a wiki. Here's the link:
Excellent resource! A public wiki makes sense for others to add resources on this until Apple does something like this formally.
Your first (not updated) post was published in the May edition of PCMagazine.
The wiki that James Welsh from USF made seems to be the most up-to-date list; if you could, please link that at the top of the first post and/or this one.
A big thanks goes out to both of you guys for compiling these.
Add Abilene Christian University (ACU) in Texas to the list.
The link for the RTS iTunes site is http://itunes.rts.edu. Most of the content right now are course lectures from the virtual campus (the distance learning program) - http://virtual.rts.edu
Southwestern College in Chula Vista, California is now part of iTunes University. Check us out!
You can use limewire also for downloadign! iTUNES isnt the only way. Btw u can buy legal music from limewire also!
download - www.free-limewire-download.us
You won't find the library of educational podcasts from iTunes U using Limewire because Limewire users are not sharing that kind of content. As long as filesharing programs like Limewire are used primarily for trading copyrighted content such as music and movies, you also won't see any endorsements for its use in educational settings by educators.
thanks for this list. I never knew it existed on itunes
This is a great resource. Thanks for posting this.
so what's the secret to getting your school on the iTunes store list for iTunes University? is there a cost, application, the sale of a soul?
No cost to be a member and no known way to make the special in store list. Apple is looking for schools with active podcasting and media production and programs that have a broad appeal (beyond the obvious PR content that all schools want to include)
You can get information on applying to be an iTunes U school at http://www.apple.com/education/itunesu/administrators.html
Excellent resourse thank you for the free iTunes software link http://www.ebooknetworking.com
thanks for the list. I never knew these things existed on itunes.
I also like iTunes Music. This is a great development for educational institutes. People will develop more and more new innovative ideas. This is the reason of technology.
You can find podcasts in the "Beyond Campus" area from the NY Public Library, the Museum of Modern Art, the US Holocaust Memorial Museum and others..... This is perfect! It makes searching around for these sites so much easier! Great job!
Very good work, thanks for comments ! There are excellent resources here !
I think your blog is a great resource ! Thanks.
I don´t know if you can add a brazilian university: USP.
Sure, you don't get any college credit, but we should seek knowledge anyway. Do you think iTunes U will be a success?
I'd say that it's already a success and has spawned several other projects like http://academicearth.org/
Thanks for this information. I wonder how much they charge for the itunes download.
iTunes is a free download and so are the podcasts within the iTunes U area.
Good post man, liked, im back other time.
indicate to my friends!
