iTunes U

The iTunes U session shed some interesting light on the whole iTunes U model. First, the students will authenticate from our LDAP server and so their LDAP records will have to have a record of courses they are in and what priviledges they have for iTunes U content. This should be easier since we have authentication and course creation in woodle using LDAP. Second, we will have 500GB or .5TB of space for course content. This is a change from when it was first announced. Lastly, it should be easy to integrate with woodle because of our LDAP setup. It may require some cookie or session coding to avoiding having the student login to iTunes U if they are already in woodle, but the iTunes U engineers may be able to help with that or maybe a NITLE sponsored project can accomplish the integration. A pretty good bit of info.
