“A top official with Apple visited Ohio University on Wednesday and announced two new partnerships between the international computer company and OU. John Couch, vice president for education for Apple, toured campus and… announced that Apple has selected OU as a ‘Beta Site’ for its iTunes University. As an iTunes University, OU faculty and staff can use iTunes software to manage data such as photographs, podcasts and videos for free, according to a release from OU,” The Athens News reports.
“With the new software, faculty members can easily post and change content, and students can upload their own content to share with their professors or with the class, the Web site states. All content will be stored in an Apple-hosted repository that can be browsed and searched,” The Athens News reports. “Couch also announced Apple’s partnership with OU’s new Go Mobile discount laptop purchasing program. In this program, the university is making laptop computers available at a low cost to students.”

Some schools make the right decision and support all of their students. Other’s don’t. If you’re a student at a school without iTunes U, dash off an email to your administration or school newspaper asking why the school is not participating with iTunes U. Note: Ohio University has 16,640 undergraduate students and 862 full-time faculty members.
