The California Department of Education (CDE) recently signed an agreement with Apple, Inc. to create CDE on iTunes U. With this partnership, California joins a select group of states that have established a presence on iTunes U. CDE on iTunes U will be a centralized repository of continuously expanding professional development content that is produced primarily by local educational agencies (LEAs) and private education institutions throughout the state.
Submitted content that meets the evaluation criteria will be instantly available to educators and stakeholders at all levels of California's education system, especially teachers of elementary, middle, and high school students.
The content in the collection will include high quality videos, audio recordings, text documents, presentations, and other education related information in a variety of downloadable formats that can be accessed online free of charge, 24 hours a day, seven days a week via desktop computers and mobile communication devices.
By sharing your resources on iTunes U, you will be making important and timely professional development content you have produced available to all California’s educators.
