UNESCO is Now Contributing Movies, Podcast, and Documents to iTunes University
By joining iTunes U, a dedicated area of the iTunes Store that offers free audio and video content from leading educational institutions, UNESCO is reinforcing its efforts to reach out to young men and women around the world, providing multilingual audio, visual and printed materials in education, sciences, culture and communication.
Collections containing several hundred movies, podcasts, and documents are available in three languages (English, French and Spanish), ranging from training support materials, to policy reports and journals, and lectures, interviews and documentaries which can be downloaded for free to a computer, iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. The collections will be regularly updated with new content from UNESCO’s programmes as well as from its 65 years of archives.
