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:

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).
Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
