Currently, over 800 colleges and universities from across the globe provide post-secondary learning content to iTunes U.There is also a section that focuses on K-12 education, where US state or county education departments provide content for both students and educators.

    To access the content, users are required to download the free Apple iTunes program onto a computer, iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch which then allows you to browse resources by school, subject, most downloaded, or noteworthy courses.
