If you want to be at the forefront of any subject there is no better way than to check it out online.
This week, I’ve been swotting up with Stanford University, who have utilised iTunes-U (a learning focused section on iTunes) to go one step further and produce a series of free public lectures. They focus on how to build iPhone applications and have proved incredibly popular with over one million downloads in only seven weeks.
The lectures are recorded from live classroom teachings delivered by Apple engineers. Apple currently has around 40,000 iPhone applications with new and amusing ‘apps’ being created daily.
With applications being touted as the new brand advertising – it’s no wonder the lectures have been so well received.
