1. iTunes U – Great Educational Content

If you like educational content, then check out iTunes U. You will be able to browse whether your university, college, or school has its own section.

One good example we discovered in just a few minutes of browsing around was a panel discussion with three Nobel Prize winning economists moderated by Paul Solmon (Economic correspondent for the PBS News Hour). You can find the podcast in iTunes U => Universities & Colleges => Boston University => BUNIVERSE - Business => Audio Like much of the content in iTunes U, it was free!

Figure 1. You can earch for a particular university, then browse iTunes U by that university.

If you are in a location with a good wireless signal, you can tap the title of the audio or video item, and then listen to or watch it streaming (see Figure 2). If your signal gets interrupted, however, you will lose your place in the video. There are many advantages to actually downloading the file (if possible) for later viewing, not least of which is that you get more control of the video-watching experience.

2. Download for Offline Viewing

If you know you are going to be out of wireless coverage for a while, such as on an airplane or in the subway, you will want to download the content for later, offline viewing or listening. Tap the Free button to change it to a Download button, and then tap it again. You can then monitor the download progress (some larger videos may take 10 minutes or more to complete) by tapping the Downloads button at the bottom right of the screen. When the download is complete, the item will show up in the correct area in your iPad icon.

NOTE

Any file larger than 20MB cannot be downloaded over the 3G network; you must use Wi-Fi for larger files.

3. Searching iTunes

Sometimes you have a good idea of what you want, but you are unsure where it is located or perhaps you don't feel like browsing or navigating all the menus. The Search tool is for you.

Up in the top right hand corner of the iTunes app, as in virtually every other iPad app, you have a search window.



Touch Search, and the search window and the on device keyboard will pop up. Once you start typing, the iPad will begin to try to match your entry with possibilities.

Type in the artist, song name, video name, podcast name, or album you are searching for, and the iPad will display detailed matches. Be as general or as specific as you would like. If you are just looking to browse all particular songs by an artist, type the artist's name. If you want a specific song or album, enter the full name of the song or album.

When you locate the song or album name, simply touch it and you will be taken to the purchase page.
