iTunes U

Because UF has no immediate plans to move iTunesU out of beta, the committee has stopped loading library-related content.  We consider the project finished until UF decides to proceed.

 

Image captured on August 10, 2010.  IR & University Archives seems to have been added.

Action item: Identify learning objects, aka "things," that we would want in the libraries' iTunes U space.

  1. More helpful instruction videos (e.g. for databases? general use of libraries? on navigating the website?)
  2. All library-as-place videos
  3. library presentations (e.g. OA general information session)
  4. pdfs (e.g. cheat sheet, other documents commonly used in instruction)

 

In compiling this list, we may discover that other, more realistic repositories for this information exist, such as the IR, YouTube, etc.  Note the University has not put its full weight or resources behind iTunesU to populate or market it.
