The Requirements: To integrate the inherent flexibility that iTunes U offers in both pedagogical innovation and delivery of instruction with the University’s infrastructure; this implementation needed to offer a seamless and minimal to no learning curve use of the system. The Solution: We implemented a 2-prong approach for maximum user flexibility (both instructors and students), recognizing that users may want more or less control over their instructional products before releasing them to students. At GW, access to the iTunes U environment is authenticated and merged within the Blackboard Learning System. Only students officially registered for courses have access to the instructional materials uploaded in an iTunes U course site. In addition, both the creation of iTunes U course sites and access to the materials on an iTunes U course site can be completed through Blackboard.
