Double celebrations taking place here:
1. There have now been 1,000,000 downloads from our site on iTunes U.
2. Oxford University also currently enjoys the number one spot in the global iTunes U top downloads chart, with philosophy lecturer Marianne Talbot’s series “Romp through the history of philosophy”.
This has caused much excitement in the building and a press release sent out and a note on the university front page. The Philosophy series is excellent and one that quite a few of the team have enjoyed from day one. The marketing for this course has been low key but it has slowly built up an audience around the world, helped by good reviews in the blogosphere and open education sites – as always we’d like to thank all the lecturers who donate their time and material to help others learn about a topic area.
