For a university on the cutting edge of internet-based education, this is an important step toward openness and Next Generation Learning (NGL).
"Our students are already able to take part in many lectures via the Internet, and now that they are available on iTunes U, the entire world will have access to them", said Andrew Casson, Director of Education and Research at Dalarna University.
Dalarna University currently has over 10,000 lectures and other educational materials recorded, a selection of which will be instantly available on iTunes U. New educational content is being produced every day. In addition to classroom lectures, iTunes U also provides a new opportunity to highlight research.
"The pressure to open up and present research in a better way will continue to grow", said Andrew Casson. "For example, now the Swedish Research Council requires that all the projects for which it provides funding be published with Open Access (OA). By presenting our research on iTunes U, we are taking yet another step toward the new openness".For more information:

New Master’s programme: University of Kaiserslautern educates experts in quantum technology

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
An Australian-Chinese research team has created the world's thinnest hologram, paving the way towards the integration of 3D holography into everyday...
In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.
In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
