Use this link to log in to iTunes U if you have a Cuyamaca College on iTunes U account set up for you. Read the FAQ's below to find out how to get started with iTunes U if you don't have an account yet.
Only faculty and staff of Cuyamaca College may add content.
The first thing to do is create some audio, video, or PDF content. This can be content that you create, or your students create. Be sure to get model release forms signed.
After you have content created, contact Rhonda Bauerlein and ask to be set up with an iTunes U account.
The LTRC has backpacks available for checkout that include a Macintosh notebook computer and a video camera. Instructors need to complete the Permission Form before students will be allowed to check out this equipment. When this equipment is checked out, a Check-out Agreement must be signed.
You can use iTunes U to share audio, video, and PDF files. It is recommended that your audio files be in AAC or MP3 format with the appropriate file extension (.m4a or .mp3) and your video files be in MPEG-4 format with H.264 compression and with the appropriate file extension (.mp4, .m4v, or .mov). For more information, see Apple's guide for creating content.
You can use a program like Handbrake to convert your files into the mp3 and mp4 file formats that iTunes U accepts. If you prefer to use a web based conversion tool, try Zamzar. Note that files will have to be uploaded to the internet to use Zamzar, which could take a long time.
