In May 2007, Apple announced the launch of iTunes U via the iTunes Store, which delivers university lectures from top U.S. colleges. With iTunes version 12.7 in August 2017, iTunes U collections became a part of the Podcasts app.

On 10 June 2020, Apple formally announced that iTunes U will be discontinued from the end of 2021


There are three main branches of iTunes U which are:

  • Beyond Campus
  • K12
  • University

Each has a list of institutions, each institution can have many courses. It is common for courses in the same institution to share files with other courses in the same institution.


The following URL can garner more meta details for organizing, this is the URL used by iTunes U app but requires you to subscribe to the course, then use the cookie to request and get the meta.


User Agent

In some cases if you want to pull data from iTunes links you can set the following user agent in your request.

"user-agent", "iTunesU/3.8 iOS/13.3 model/iPad6,7 hwp/s8001 build/17C54 (5; dt:111) iTunesU/3.8"

Archiving Status

Example course uploaded to IA, the course is called "Addressing Learning Disabilities in the Inclusive Classroom" from "Alberta Teachers Association".


Each upload contains a meta file for the course, in this example. addressing_learning_disabilities_in_the_inclusive_classroom.json which contains all the meta for course description, file descriptions and course content.

Beyond Campus

All Beyond Campus has been uploaded to IA.

Beyond Campus has 85 institutions and is the smallest subset of the three, it has been fully archived as of 20/11/2020, total size roughly is 750GB.

This list will be updated when complete, for now you can view uploads here.
