From the Chronicle of Higher Education: The University of California at Berkeley is making audio and video recordings of many course lectures available free to anyone — on campus or off — through Apple Computer's popular iTunes music store, campus officials announced on Tuesday. Berkeley's project is the latest evidence of colleges' growing interest in offering podcasts of course material — and in using iTunes to deliver those recordings. Several other institutions, including Stanford University and the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor's dental school, have also struck deals with Apple to distribute course recordings on iTunes. But Berkeley is unique among those universities distributing through iTunes in making its podcasts free to the public instead of restricting them to students and alumni.
