Mizzou is now on iTunes U, Apple’s distribution system for university lectures, performances, and other educational content. We are now taking submissions from faculty and staff.
In order to access iTunes U, users will need to have either a Mac or Windows machine with the free iTunes software installed, or one of Apple’s mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch).
The success of Mizzou on iTunes U will be dependent on our amazing faculty and staff providing high-quality content. So if you’re interested in contributing a course or collection to iTunes U, please email Josh Hughes at firstname.lastname@example.org with:

iTunes U supports audio files in either the MP3 or AAC format, MPEG-4 video files with H.264 compression, PDFs, and ePubs (for use with Apple’s iBooks application for iOS devices). Apple goes into a bit more detail on supported formats. Files must be less than 1 GB in size.
The content should be educational. Lectures, demonstrations, news and events and examples of groundbreaking research are examples of appropriate materials. It is also important that the content not infringe on another party’s copyright.
Materials uploaded to iTunes U are publicly available, and accessible to anyone using the iTunes software. Content will also show up in searches of the iTunes Store.
