Faculty: Getting Started with iTunes U
SMU uses Apples iTunes U to distribute podcasts. Here are the steps to get you going:
- Sign a "Faculty
Content Release Form for SMU on iTunes U."
Send a copy to Ian Aberle at SMU Box 0125.
- Your iTunes U course must be linked to your
Email Ian Aberle with your course's unique ID from Blackboard. For example "STAT1301-0012-1104"
- Once you have been contacted about your course being linked, you can begin uploading files.
- Every semester, your iTunes U course must
be linked to your current semesters Blackboard course.
This can be a new iTunes U course or you can reuse your old iTunes U course. If you reuse your old iTunes U course, you can also reuse the old podcast by putting them in a "private" tab and moving them to your "Lectures" tab as needed.
If you are currenly using some other method to distribute your podcasts and
your RSS feeds, you can still have them listed in SMU on iTunes U.
Contact Ian Aberle about having the iTunes U course set up to link to your RSS feed.
