It is not just Michigan either.. as you continue to explore the I-tunes library, you'll see that there were a total of 9 states that took part in that pilot project around the I-tunes University. Our close neighbor, Maine, also has a great set of stuff as well as New Jersey, they really jumped on board and have multiple sites running within the University. Arizona's IDEAL project is there too.

For all, as Luis says, these are downloadable assets of all range.. curricular, speeches from various folks, and units of study that students can access.  I saw a roll out of this last spring just prior to NECC.  I believe I posted something on School-IT, but it probably didn't get out far and wide.. would have been July.

Anyways..Luis.. thanks for posting this resource.

Subject: ipods in the classroom

I just discovered University of Michigan's iTunes Library.  Loads of video and audio podcasts.  From my home, these 50 - 60 minute videos download in about 2 or 3 minutes.
I'm especially thrilled about their 'Saturday Morning Physics' series.
I thought I'd share.

Here's another favorite.

Are any schools using ipods in the classroom to deliver content to students?
Anyone have a mobile ipod lab?
