Stanford on iTunes, Jobs' 2005 Commencement Video

Forbes reports on an interesting service called Stanford on iTunes ( which made its debut in October 2005.

In an unprecedented move, Stanford University is collaborating with Apple Computer to allow public access a wide range of lectures, speeches, debates and other university content through iTunes.

There are presently 500 tracks available for free to all iTunes users. The Stanford iTunes section is only available from a direct link on the Stanford iTunes site.

Of interest to Mac users, they have recently added the full video (iTunes Link) of the Steve Jobs 2005 Commencement Speech at Stanford. A transcript of the speech was previously posted in June 2005.

The Stanford service appears to be a part of a larger initiative by Apple called iTunes U. The service from Apple offers universities the ability to deliver educational content for free.

Its the most powerful way to manage a broad range of audio or video content and make it available quickly and easily to students, faculty, and staff.
