University professors go mobile with iTunes U

If you want to know some fact about professors go mobile then read the following article by Brent Renneke

A survey David Arendale gave his students on the first day of his introductory world history course told him podcasting was basically unknown.
By the end of the semester, more than half of his students were subscribing to his podcasts and receiving them on a weekly basis.

The University of Minnesota is one of more than 200 colleges and universities around the world that is a part of iTunes U, an Apple-operated Web site available through the iTunes Store that provides educational podcasts for download.
Professors are able to request a section for their course on the University’s iTunes U site and post content, such as class lectures and supplemental material, as podcasts. Students can then download the podcasts to their personal library and add them to an iPod or iPhone.
