iTunesU: Tuition Free

Do you want to sit-in on lectures from some of the most prominent professors at the most prestigious universities? You can at Apple’s iTunes U. iTunesU harnesses the power of podcasting for education.
By simply going to the iTunes Music Store in iTunes and clicking on the iTunesU link you can access courses and lecture from hundreds of colleges and universities. You can listen to Astronomy 101 at Stanford or the Philosophy Of Love at MIT, all without touching the parents nest-egg.
Course lectures aren’t the only thing at iTunesU. How about Mozart’s requiem sung by the Duke choir or art exhibitions and discussion from the Museum of Modern Art or video guitar lessons from Little Kid’s Rock?
While you may not be enrolled or paying tuition or have a diploma to show for it, you can say that you took engineering coursework at MIT and still pass a lie detector test.
