Listen up, you studious students. iTunes will be releasing a new service to help further your studying, and by studying, I mean skipping class and not worrying about it. iTunes U will be teaming up with universities and other education establishments to offer a free hosting service for educators. With this service instructors can upload videotaped or audio recorded lectures to iTunes and students can download them to their iPods or watch it at their computers. Hooray for not going to class and making it up later!
