iTunes U exceeded 300 million downloads

Before three years Apple in collaboration with colleges and universities has mad iTunes U. It made it easy to extend learning, explore interests or learn more about a school. iTunes U, a dedicated area within the iTunes store, offers users public access to content from world class institutions. All iTunes U content is free and can be enjoyed on a Mac or PC, or wirelessly downloaded directly onto an iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

This was just an introduction to what I am going to tell and the above given things are known to everyone. So the main thing is that iTunes U download exceeded 300 million, which is quite an extra ordinary achievement Apple had made up.

In just over three years, iTunes U downloads have topped 300 million and it has become one of the world’s most popular online educational catalogs. Over 800 universities, from around the world have active iTunes U sites. They provide access to video or audio tutorials, lectures and anything they can provide value to.

New content has been added from universities in countries like China, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico and Singapore. The audio and video files exceeds number in 350,000, which is a huge collection. If iTunes store is able to store files from all universities around the world the video and audio collection could well overtake YouTube by a massive margin.

“iTunes U makes it easy for people to discover and learn with content from many of the world’s top institutions”, said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of Internet Services. This is just another cool application from Apple.
