/// Apple’s iTunes U Hits 1 Billion Downloads

February 28, 2013  |  All Things Digital

A new milestone for Apple’s iTunes U, the company’s vast catalog of lectures from colleges and universities around the world. Apple said Thursday that since its debuted in 2007, iTunes U has served up more than 1 billion downloads . That’s a nice, big number ( Stanford University alone has seen more than 60 million downloads ). But a perhaps more impressive one is this: Apple says that some iTunes U courses boast enrollments of more than 250,000 students. Even accounting for Apple hyperbole, the idea that there are virtual lectures being attended anything close to 250,000 students is pretty astonishing. Also of interest: 60 percent of iTunes U downloads originate from outside the United States
