Drawing from hundreds of hours of journalism and rich programming archives, the American Public Media free offerings in the new "Beyond Campus" section of iTunes U feature an extensive catalog of programs produced by Marketplace(r), Speaking of Faith(r), and American RadioWorks(r), as well as selections from The Writer's Almanac(r) with Garrison Keillor, Word for Word(TM) and Composer's Datebook(r). Adding a valuable dimension to the downloadable audio are printable transcripts and suggested discussion questions to support the use of these programs in a classroom setting.
"iTunes U offers an exciting opportunity to extend the value of the outstanding programming produced by American Public Media's radio series, strengthen our relationship with educators, and connect with a generation of students that are already plugged in to iTunes," said Sarah Lutman, senior vice president, Content and Media, for American Public Media. "iTunes U will also be a powerful gateway to the dynamic supplemental web content that accompanies our signature programs."
