Hooray! The OU is on iTunesU — one of the first three major European universities to join the project. (The others coming on board today are University College, London and Trinity College, Dublin). At last we have a proper global distribution channel for our stuff.

BBC Report here.

Tony Hirst tells the story behind this (in itself an interesting case study of how old-style media relations teams have difficulties engaging with viral-blog-type media).

Stuart Brown puts the iTunesU project in a wider context.

Martin also blogged it.

One of the interesting things about the OU offering is that we offer downloadable texts (in pdf format) as well as audio and video.
