iTunes as PLE: iStanford

Stanford has created its own iTunes Music Store for distributing recordings of lectures, sports coverage and campus events.

This is interesting for a number of reasons, not least of which is the acknowledgement that a non-institutional instrument (iTunes, iPod) is the most appropriate one for distributing and using learning resources.

So, it could be argued that Stanford are acknowledging part of the PLE argument - that its an effective strategy to delegate the management of learning resources to learner-contributed technologies.
