Vanderbilt on iTunes U works with OAK to allow faculty to easily add content and for students to download it. Any faculty member interested in posting information from their classes, or to supplement their lectures, can use iTunes U. Faculty have the option of making their content available only to their students or to the world at large.
Staff from the Division of Public Affairs are available to help get you set up in iTunes U, to loan equipment, consult on equipment you might want to purchase, and to provide basic training on capturing and uploading content to iTunes U. Don’t worry if you don’t think you are tech-savvy—the process is simple and you will be up and running in no time. Contact us, and read more about getting started in iTunes using OAK.
Faculty should be aware that copyright rules apply to content posted on iTunes. In general, excerpts from compositions, books, poems, films, recordings, songs and more can be presented—presentation of an entire work requires the author’s permission. Please keep this in mind when posting content to iTunes U.
The university has prepared a release form for speakers to sign if they agree to have their lecture, performance or presentation made available on the Web. Download the release form.
