What copyright restrictions are on UCL Content?
There are no DRM (Digital Rights Management ) restrictions, so the content can easily be shared. However, UCL provides the content under the terms of a Creative Commons licence within which some rights are reserved. Please click here for more details.
Do I require iTunes and Apple products to use this service?
The iTunes software is required to access the iTunes U site, however versions are available for Windows and Macintosh operating systems. Linux users can run iTunes for Windows with WINE installed. Please click here for more details.
Do I require an MP3 player to use this service?
If you wish to listen or watch content on the go, then a mobile device is required. iTunes is optimised to work with Apple products such as an iPod or iPhone, however there is limited support for other devices.
A mobile device is not essential, as users can keep the content on their computer or burn it to CD or DVD.
What if I'm a member of UCL and use WTS?
The iTunes software is not available on WTS at present, though the possibilities are being investigated. We plan to make the UCL content on iTunes U available via other routes such that it will be accessible to WTS users as soon as is practical.
