    I love iTunesU, its simply the best way to get high quality lectures for free. Even though you can’t get a degree – simply being able to get a series of physics lectures from MIT or Philosophy from Oxford is great. If you want the degree at the end, sign up for the course and you can probably finish it in half the time!

    I was just about to search for free classes online, this sounds great. I am going to check this out when I get home tonight.

    Happy to hear of this opportunity!

    • Matt Breed

      Are you going to give it a go, Mary?

    I ‘ve found the information about iTunesU interesting and would like to sign up, however i am unable to locate its logo in the top bar as indicated in your message. Any help in finding it would be appreciated.

    • Matt Breed

      You got it Jay.

      First, you must install Itunes, which can be found here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/

      Once you have downloaded and installed the program, click the “iTunes store” link on the left, and then the “Itunes U” link across the top. From there, you will be able to browse from everything available.

      Good luck! Hope this helps.

    This is great. I taught for 37 years and had a Master”s in English and a Ph.d in Math.
    Now retired I find I need an educational input but did not want to spend more money since
    the new knowledge will be self fullfilling only. Thank you.

    • Matt Breed

      It is comments like this that make this all worth it…Tish, you’re welcome. Glad I could help.

    This sounds great! The internet offers a lot and it will only get better. OTOH, yesterday I was looking for a book ‘How to do Aircraft Sheetmetal Work by Norcross and Quinn” and when I searched for it in google, right at the top was a place called ‘World of Books’ (or so I thought). So I went there and clicked on a pdf and it downloads and I get an EXECUTABLE file. I didn’t know why it was an executable, it should have been (it was labeled ‘How_to_do_aircraft_welding.pdf.exe) I was worried that I had downloaded a virus (which it turned out to be, obviously) I did a search for ‘world of books virus’ and there are a bunch of pages about how somebody is getting people (like me) to click on a link that appears to be from a LEGITIMATE world of books but the link goes to a place named worild of books. Unless you are looking carefully, the ‘i’ looks like a lower case ‘l’. Really sneaky. There are a couple of places you can get rid of the virus (I actually didn’t click on the downloaded executable, but I was about to) and there is a firefox add on ‘DitDefender Quick Scan’, but Clam AV (which is good because if you hover your mouse over a link it will automatically search and see how many people are using the program, it turned out that it was suspicious and that got me going to do a search) but I specifically right clicked and started Norton on it, and it said it was OK.
    So keep your eyes open, the thieves are getting better and sneakier. That ‘worid of books’ site looks great, professionally done and very close to the real world of books, except its a nest of vipers waiting for you to click on something. I guess the fact I was looking for something ‘free’ made me more vulnerable, lots of things appear to be free but in reality are anything but.

    Recently, I have been having trouble in one of my classes, and decided to supplement the material with two different course selections from ITunes U. At first, I had not even considered it for this, but it has immensely helped me to grasp the material. So for those of you currently taking any classes, if you are not “getting it”, see if there is a similar course on ITunes U that may help you out!

    I love iTune U. It’s perfect for the chronic students like myself who love to learn. I wish there was a specific learning path for particular subjects areas and tests once completed.

    There are alwas CLEP tests which provide college credit by exam. Not all colleges and Universities accept them though.

    tjis site is extremely uncooperative. I am a senior citizen and this place gives me nothing. Please help. I would love to get an increase in my knowledge

      What kind of help do you need? I myself am a new iMac/ iTunes user. I have however found Apple/ Mac ALWAYS HAS A VERY DETAILED USER GUIDE WITH EVERY PRODUCT RELEASED. Most of the time a VIDEO TUTORIAL! If you can get iTunes downloaded to your device just click on Help and then on video tutorial.

    Have looks at iTunes U a few times and looked fantastic!! Only I have just come to use it, i am looking for masters level materials in Public Health, and don’t know how to judge the standard/quality of the university. Great if your subject has materials offered by Harvard/Yale/UCL/Cambridge etc but if its a uni I have never heard of, especially from US where standards are different, how can you judge quality? Most of the PH materials/courses that i can find are from Liberty University, which I understand is a highly religious school -and i heard taught Creationism! I believe these things should be kept out of Healthcare and have heard the materials from this Uni, and their professors, are often biased in this way. So how can I trust materials and what to do if there are no full courses from reputable unis?

    • Pamela

      Seems like you say Creationism as if it were a disease.
