What is iTunes U?

iTunes U is Apple’s free service for educational resources contributed by more than 800 universities, museums, libraries, and public radio and television.  NMNH is using this innovative platform to share resources that have not previously been made publically available, and to create collections of educational materials for focused topics, such as genomics, dinosaurs, and museum studies.

What can I find on NMNH’s iTunes U?

At launch (October 1, 2011) 170 videos and 14 audio tracks will be available from each research division at the Museum—Anthropology, Botany, Entomology, Mineral Sciences, Paleobiology, Zoology, and special collections created from exhibits and research programs, workshops, and lecture series. Expect the site to grow!
