"Last month we reported that Apple's iTunes U service had surpassed the 600m downloads mark, 300m of which were in the past year alone. And now it seems that The Open University in the UK is leading the university pack, notching over 40m downloads, reports the BBC."
Founded in 1969, The Open University is now the top school in iTunes U. This is saying quite a bit I think, since they have courses from the likes of Stanford, Yale, MIT and many others. Beginning French and Chinese were the most popular downloads and at least 1/5 of all downloads was done on an iPad. iTunes U is a gem in my book, and you can find out more about iTunes U right here.
