Only yesterday, I became aware of something on the iTunes Store called the "iTunes University." For those of you who use iTunes software for your music and podcast listening, when you click on the green icon for the Itunes Store, in that top-left-hand box labeled "Genres" in the first window that comes up, click on iTunes U.

That will take you to the opening page of the listing of university lectures and courses which have been posted on the iTunes servers. They have materials (at this date) from:

Abilene Christian University
Arizona State University
Bowdoin College -- (right here in Maine)
Broome Community College
Concordia Seminary -- (has both Greek and Hebrew language lessons)
DePaul University
Duke
Gordon College
Miami Dade College
Michigan Tech University
MIT
NJIT
Northeastern University
Otis College of Art and Design
Pennsylvania State University
Queen's University
Reformed Theological Seminary
Seattle Pacific University
Stanford
Texas A&M University
Texas Tech University
UC Berkeley
UMBC
University of Arizona
University of Pennsylvania
University of South Florida
Vanderbilt University
Yale University

One thing to be watchful for when looking over the listings: While many of them have the usual SUBSCRIBE button like podcasts do, a lot of the course-pages also have a GET TRACKS button, and some of the pages have only got the GET TRACKS button, with no option to subscribe.

I suspect the files marked "get tracks" are the duplicate-listings under other headings for things that are in a Subscription heading elsewhere on that University's listings.

ALSO: quite a few of the pages have tabbed-sets of listings, sometimes by time periods, sometimes by whether the files displayed are "Audio" or "Video." If you miss seeing the tabs, you may miss out on some interesting lectures or discussions.
Blessings, both Bright and Dark,
