Stanford on iTunes U grew out of a pilot project with Apple, beginning in the spring of 2004, to deliver
supplemental course content to registered students using iTunes. We soon realized that the same platform would be a great way to deliver Stanford content to alumni and the public as well. Stanford launched the first publicly available iTunes U collection in 2005.
