Experience the University of Washington and Husky pride through iTunes U, which showcases fun and informative audio and video about Husky Life, recent events and the interesting people and discoveries that can be found at the UW. This popular service is based on Apple’s iTunes Store, where millions of people already get their music, movies and TV shows. Here are some Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the University of Washington’s connection to Apple and iTunes?
Apple invited the UW to join other universities that post content at iTunes U. Our part of the site – known as UW on iTunes U – will offer new opportunities for the campus community to share audio and video that complements existing online offerings. It is a joint project of Computing and Communications and Media Relations and Communications, with lots of input and help from other departments and units around campus, plus two student focus groups.
What type of content will UW on iTunes U feature?
The site will feature audio and video content that covers a wide variety of subjects. Lectures, advising FAQ’s, campus events and more will be presented. Check out the content categories. We’re hoping to have lots of fresh, interesting and continually changing content to make the site dynamic and worth visiting often.
Can I upload my videos to UW on iTunes U?
Yes. In fact, we are hoping user contributions, particularly from students, will become a major component of the site. We will guide you through the process and are always looking for submissions . To learn more, to suggest content or to try out our submission form, go to our Contribute Page >
What if I want to share something that’s already on an iTunes page?
Drop us an e-mail so we can consider including it on a new Web page we’re building that will contain links to otherUW podcasts, audio and/or video that’s already available on iTunes or elsewhere on the Web. If you are in a department with an existing iTunes page, it may serve you to put a short clip that is representative of your content on iTunes U as a teaser to show visitors the way to your library.
Do I need a password to access the site?
Yes and no. There is a “public” side that anyone can visit to find content in the broad categories we have created. There will also be a “private” side with lectures, courses and related content intended for UW students, faculty and staff. Your UW Net ID will be your ticket to the private side. The private side is under development.
