Posting your lecture or event on iTunes U

What's the advantage? Your students live online — and so should your lectures and special events. By including lectures/events in iTunes U, they will continue to be available to students and/or community members to listen to on their computers or iPods.

Is your content safe? You're able to decide if you'd like to make your audio or video files available to the public or just to the UVM community. Keep in mind that copyright rules apply to content posted on iTunes. In general, excerpts from compositions, books, poems, films, recordings, songs and more can be presented, but presentation of an entire work requires the author’s permission.

Ready to get started? If you are a professor at UVM looking to have your lecture posted on iTunes U, please contact Charles.Webb@uvm.edu of the CTL. If you are the coordinator of an event or lecture on campus interested in sharing your lecture on iTunes U, please contact Amanda.Waite@uvm.edu.

In what format do I supply my files? iTunes U only accepts files for upload that are less than 500 megabytes (MB). Audio files must be either AAC or MP3 with appropriate file extensions (.m4a, .mp3). To use specific cover artwork with an audio track, use the AAC file type format (.m4a). Video files must be MPEG-4 with H.264 compression with appropriate file extensions (.mp4, .m4v, .mov). If you are using QuickTime to create and edit video content, export your videos by choosing Movie to iPod from the Export pop-up menu in QuickTime Pro.
