At last a British university has had the good sense to follow Stanford, Yale and MIT, and publish materials via the iTunes U service. UCL, with Trinity College and the Open University, has launched its iTunes platform, with free lectures, interviews, seminars and news available to download onto iPods or computers.

What I do like about the UCL service is its enlightened mix of content:

  • a virtual tour of this year’s UCL Slade School of Fine Art Summer Show
  • recent lectures by high-profile speakers, such as Dr Tadataka Yamada of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
  • first-hand expert accounts of the history of neuroscience
  • UCL’s popular Lunch Hour Lectures, providing the public with behind-the-scenes look at cutting-edge research
