The Stephen M. Ross School of Business, part of the University of Michigan, and Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business have both launched iTunes U sites. The sites offer content for students, faculty and the general public using Apple’s iTunes software.
iTunes U is a hosted content distribution system that enables colleges and universities to provide audio and video files recorded from lectures and other school events through iTunes. Users can download content that interests them and can even subscribe to podcasts. The University of California, Berkeley, Stanford and others are participating. Schools can choose to make the content public or restrict it only to students and faculty.
The Ross School of Business is offering select content on its Web site, including events, seminars and news. The site is offering audio and video podcast channels, as well — including content from the Center for Positive Organizational Scholarship, the William Davidson Institute and Dividend magazine.
Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business has launched Fuqua on iTunes, which includes speeches, interviews and conference presentations at the school, all available to the general public.
Material provided through Fuqua on iTunes including a speech by JPMorgan Chase & Co. CEO Jamie Dimon; the keynote address of the 2005 Coach K and Fuqua School of Business Conference on Leadership; and an interview with Duke professor John Graham on the results from the latest Duke University/CFO Magazine Business Outlook survey.
Fuqua plans to launch an executive education program using Fuqua on iTunes U in the coming year.
