UC Berkeley, free podcasts

The University of California, Berkeley today announced "Berkeley on iTunes U," a free service offering a growing number of video and audio course lecture recordings available both on and off campus. "This reinforces the digital bridge to our students, alumni and the world, and allows us to explore new distribution channels," Obadiah Greenberg said, product manager for webcast.berkeley.edu. "It also allows UC Berkeley to broaden what we make available, including video podcasts and other digital material." Courses are fully available to the public without password protection, marking the first time a school has offered all of its "coursecasting" content to the public, according to UCBerkeleyNews. "As a public university, UC Berkeley has a tradition of openness," Greenberg said. "It really speaks to our motto -- 'Fiat Lux,' Let there be light." UC Berkeley joins Stanford University, the University of Michigan's Dental School, Oregon State University, and numerous other schools that already signed similar deals with Apple.
