Open University on iTunesU

June 3, 2008

OU at iTunesU

As part of the launch of iTunesU in Europe the OU is one of a few universities in the UK offering content for free through iTunes. I think the team at the OU that carried out the work have done a great job – and there is more about that on blogs from Martin, Doug & Tony. What this shows for us working on Open Content are a couple of things:

1. Content for free is part of university mission not just intitiative

2. The resources that are the raw materials for mix and match are now out there (over to Tony at OUseful to work out the best mashup to carry out!)

3. Routes to mass users are finally escaping from our own systems

These are interesting times.
