The Christian Post reports that Apple is partnering with Christian universities to distribute sermons, Christian lectures, chapel services, presentations and Christian media, concerts, performances, and sports highlights for free through its popular music and media software, iTunes.
Christian universities are able to upload their content, along with a customizable design, from where students are able to download the free content to their iPods. Of course students can listen from their computers as well.
“iTunes U makes it easy for anyone to access amazing educational material from many of the country’s most respected colleges and universities,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of iTunes, in a statement for the launch of iTunes U earlier this year. “Education is a lifelong pursuit and we’re pleased to give everyone the ability to download lectures, speeches and other academic content for free,” he added.
