The National Archives just joined iTunes U, a dedicated area within the iTunes Store giving users public access to thousands of free lectures, videos, books and podcasts from learning institutions all over the world. If you already have iTunes on your iPhone, iPad, iPod, or computer, you can search for “National Archives” on iTunes U to find our channel, or visit us at http://itunes.apple.com/us/institution/national-archives-and-records/id438983411. Our initial collections feature selected archival documents, lesson plan materials, podcasts by the Presidential Libraries, videos from our “Inside the Vaults” series and more. Start exploring, and subscribe to get updates.
Are you unfamiliar with iTunes U? It’s an online hub of educational resources for students, teachers, and lifelong learners, made available through the iTunes site. You can learn more at http://www.apple.com/education/itunes-u/ or download a copy of iTunes and start exploring.
We are just getting started, so if you have ideas or recommendations for collections, please share your suggestions here on NARAtions or send us an email at socialmedia [at] nara.gov.
