in brief The University of Queensland (UQ) today launched a range of free lectures, videos and other material on iTunes' dedicated education channel iTunes U.
Through iTunes U users can search, download and play content from schools and universities around the world. UQ today joins over 300 schools in Australia and New Zealand delivering free educational content through the service.
"iTunes U increases UQ's flexibility in delivering learning material tremendously, as we can now provide content for people on the run to their iPod or iPhone, anytime, anywhere," UQ deputy vice-chancellor Professor Debbie Terry said in a statement.
"UQ's lecturers and researchers have embraced the opportunity to contribute content to iTunes U to share their knowledge and work. Even marketing material will help students consider study options at The University of Queensland."
Some of the content UQ has placed on iTunes U include lectures in psychology, business, medicine, journalism as well as student videos and documents from UQ's library archive.
