UofM, Apple offer podcasts
The Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan has teamed up with Apple to provide the school community with free access to events, seminars and news content via podcasts. The partnership will allow users to download the audio files to a computer and then transfer them to an MP3 player of choice, and the podcasts will be accessible to business school community members with an iMpact intranet login. Four podcast channels which include content related to Positive Organizational Scholarship, the William Davidson Institute, Dividend magazine, and the Monroe Street Journal will be available on the Apple iTunes U site. A launch event for students, faculty and staff will take place today at 4 p.m. in Hale Auditorium at the Ross School. A video presentation will be offered, as well as a brief demonstration of the new service and student iPod nano raffle.
