The university’s iTunes U presence is the star of a new video produced by Apple and featured on the higher ed section of their Web site. The video was shot by a lovely and talented Apple team and their stellar freelance video crew on the Vanderbilt campus back in March. (Much of it was shot in The Commons Center, which looks fantastic, btw). It tells the story of how the university, working closely with our very own Institute of Software Integrated Systems, developed a mechanism to use Blackboard to login to iTunes. Doesn’t sound like a big deal perhaps, but to us and the well-over 100 universities we’ve shared it with since, it made all the difference in enabling us to integrate iTunes with education.
Enough talk. Watch.
