Educational material from Apple iTunes U has been downloaded more than a billion times

Apple says that educational content from its iTunes U store has been downloaded more than a billion times. iTunes U was launched in May 2007, offering downloadable multimedia lectures and demonstrations from a variety of schools, colleges, museums and universities.

Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, said “It’s inspiring to see what educators and students of all types are doing with iTunes U. With the incredible content offered on iTunes U, students can learn like never before - there are now iTunes U courses with more than 250,000 students enrolled in them, which is a phenomenal shift in the way we teach and learn.”

There are now over 2,500 courses available to the public via iTunes U, along with many more private courses.

Earlier this year, Apple announced that 25 billion songs had been downloaded from the iTunes Music Store since it opened in April 2003.
