The project includes two sites:

Academic Use of iTunes U

Kim Hayworth, the Academic Technology Specialist and Manager of the Academic Technology Lab (ATL) in Stanford University Libraries and Academic Information Resources (SULAIR), has been working actively with instructors who want to learn how to produce their own audio and video content for teaching. She continues to be available for consulting ( (See also The Academic Technology Specialist Program: Digital Art and Diskurs '07 in this issue.) Jeremy Sabol, Academic Technology Specialist for the Center for Teaching and Learning is also available to help instructors think about how audio and video might enhance their teaching practices.

Stanford Community iTunes U Space

In addition, members of the Stanford community can share audio/video content with the entire campus via the Stanford Community iTunes U space. This Stanford-only space is intended for content of more local interest, with access via a SUNet ID.
