Stanford on iTunes

Apple is working with Stanford University to offer all sorts of lectures and seminars given at Stanford for free. Whoa!

As it stands right now, I can download lectures as a non-stanford student. I wonder what the tuition-paying students feel about this...

How do we find such thiings ?

Hi,

Without this link, it would be impossible to discover such
thing through iTunes. Does anyone know how can
we browse this kind of files ? (lectures, speeches, for example).

I mean, try to type "stanford" or even "dalai lama + stanford"
in the search field. There are no results.

I saw the same thing, downloading now, along with the Dalai Lama speeches. Free education is lovely.

Click on the link in the original post and you'll see a link sending you to the iTunes page.

As an alum, I'd say "meh"

The real value of a Snodfart education is the education outside the classroom, the interaction and connections you make with other students and the relationships you have with your professors.

Of course, the really cool thing I thought about this is all the free music from the artists in residences and student groups....

I really hope someone doesn't freak out and shut it all down.

Just listening to guest speakers would be awesome, I'm assuming Stanford draws some pretty big names.

If I were an alum, I'd be proud to have my school do something of this sort. Posting on iTunes for the convenience of the students is a great idea, but keeping it free is above and beyond the call of duty. What a great opportunity.

In fact, I'm going to write my school right now and mention this program and encourage them to follow in its footsteps.

Stanford has had this stuff free for the public for months.

But I didn't know until reading this article that other universities have similar programs with Apple on iTunes--just closed to the public generally.

Blimey, this is old news!

This was news last year - where's everyone been?

Stanford is engaging in its public duty to disseminate knowledge, and these lectures aren't the property of fee-paying students but of the intitution and their contributors (the speakers).

Most unis do public lectures, and academics' papers are published in journals and the internet (like one of mine: http://www.jonathanbaldwin.co.uk/ass...ngHistory.pdf). It's called research, and it's what universities spend most of their time and money on.

See http://www.apple.com/education/solutions/itunes_u/ for details of the 'iTunes U' service. I'm hoping to make use of it in my institution soon

Regardless of how long this has been out as others have posted. This is such an amazing and cool idea. I would never have known about this had this article not been posted on MacRumors so even though it might be old news for some I glad it was posted.

P.S. I am still wondering what was meant when the 500 free songs comment said. Where are they?
