iTunes U

What is iTunes U?
Fort Hays State University iTunes U is a service that enables faculty to deliver pre-recorded audio/video course content online. These audio and video files can help students catch up or review course materials. All of the content available will require the iTunes software to view and download materials.

  • Your students can easily download iTunes U content to any Mac, PC, iPhone, iPod or iPad and go right on learning while they grab a meal, walk to class, or work out at the gym.
  • iTunes U is a password-protected site and only your enrolled students have access to the content. iTunes U is not part of the iTunes public site.
