It's an area of the iTunes Store which features free audio and video materials for education, with resources from British and American universities as well as Education Scotland and other education organisations.
All you need is a computer with internet access, and, if you don't already have it, you'll need to download the free iTunes software. Then you can find and download Education Scotland videos, organise them into playlists and sync to a mobile device.
You can download the videos and watch them on any device capable of playing .mp4 files, such as games consoles, smartphones and netbooks. You don't need to have an iPod or an Apple Mac computer to play the files.
Yes, all of these videos are also available to watch online and download from the Education Scotland video pages on our website.
We want to ensure teachers have easy access to learning and teaching resources and iTunes U offers an effective and elegant solution, allowing us to share our materials as widely as possible.
