If you’re one of the many who have downloaded iTunes U content over the past three years, Apple says you’re not alone -- the popular online educational catalog has just topped 300 million downloads and counting.
Apple announced Tuesday morning that its popular educational content service, iTunes U, has now topped 300 million downloads. Over 800 universities throughout the world have active iTunes U sites, with nearly half of those distributing their content publicly on the iTunes Store.
“iTunes U makes it easy for people to discover and learn with content from many of the world’s top institutions,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of Internet Services. “With such a wide selection of educational material, we’re providing iTunes users with an incredible way to learn on their computer, iPhone, iPod or iPad.”
With new content recently added to iTunes U from universities in China, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico and Singapore, iTunes users now have access to over 350,000 audio and video files from educational institutions around the globe.
Among the popular iTunes U content available to the public are lessons from world class institutions such as Harvard, MIT, Cambridge, Oxford, University of Melbourne and Stanford University, who has been contributing a popular course in iOS development for the past two years.
