Apple officially announces iTunes U

Apple announced Wednesday that iTunes U is now officially available. I know that a number of our institutions have been working with Apple to get our sites ready. I am glad to see that the new section of the store is now freely available to the public. Currently, the link is placed prominently in the upper left hand corner of the iTunes store under:

  1. Music
  2. Movies
  3. TV Shows
  4. Music Videos
  5. Audiobooks
  6. Podcasts
  7. iPod Games
  8. iTunes Latino
  9. iTunes U

I am sure some will try to read more into the placement…  I suspect that because it is new it went to the bottom of the list.  It will be interesting to see over time if or how the placement changes.
