#7 – Ongoing Education with iTunes U

The Internet is the place to turn to increase your learning and continue your education. When I need an education boost I turn to iTunes. Here you can visit the iTunes Store and then open iTunes U (iTunes University) where community colleges, along with four-year colleges and universities across the world have signed up to share their classes for free.

Begin by downloading iTunes.

Once you have it on your computer or device – go to the iTunes Store and look at the banner across the top.

Click on iTunesU and then decide if you want to study at a college or university or if you’d prefer the Beyond College link. This will take you to a wide range of additional learning.

Here you’ll find links to the Library of Congress, Washington National Opera, Smithsonian Institution and Museums, Royal Ontario Museums, TED talks, National Geographic and so much more.itunes u3

If you’re looking to learn, iTunes U will have it.

If you’re thinking about taking a class, check this out first and you might find the class you’re looking for and you can either get ahead of the curve by taking it for free or maybe deciding this is not what you wanted after all.

Or perhaps you desire to learn outside of an academic setting. If so, choose the Beyond College link.

This will take you to a wide range of additional learning. Here you’ll find links to the Library of Congress, Washington National Opera, Smithsonian Institution and Museums, Royal Ontario Museums, TED talks, National Geographic and so much more.

The learning is sweet – can’t you just taste it?

  2. A few days ago I downloaded iTunes just so I could access these classes! ( iTunes and I had some issues awhile back.) I took some classes through coursera and was browsing for more learning opportunities. I am thrilled!
