If you haven’t been to this section of Apple’s iTunes Store, iTunes U is a powerful engine for distributing educational content and getting into the hands of students. Colleges, universities, even state departments of education have content available here and much of it is FREE. Now Apple is introducing FREE eBooks to its media collections.
While iTunes U gears itself towards accessing this content via the Apple iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch, you are not limited to just these devices. Open Culture has a great blog entry where their lead editor, Dan Colman, outlines how he was able to access these eBooks using other devices such as the Nook and the Kindle.
iTunes U Access:
- Connexions: 18 FREE Textbooks from Rice University
- Open University: 100 eBook Titles
- Oxford University: The Complete Collection of William Shakespeare’s Plays
