The Loop reports that Apple's iTunes U education portal has topped 600 million downloads since its official launch four years ago. The milestone reveals a significant acceleration in activity, with the service having passed 300 million downloads just a year ago.

According to Apple, iTunes U has had more than 600 million downloads since it first launched in 2007. What’s even more impressive is that they’ve had more than 300 million in the last year alone — a testament to the growing popularity of the service.

Currently, iTunes U boasts more than 1,000 universities with active accounts. Schools contributing to the program range from big to small and include some of the world’s most prestigious institutions like Harvard, MIT, Cambridge, Oxford, University of Melbourne and University of Tokyo.

Open University and Stanford University top the list of most popular sources for iTunes U users, with each registering over 30 million downloads. iTunes U is available in 123 countries, with 30% of traffic reportedly coming from iOS devices.

maybe i'm just an exception, but i don't even know what it is..

I do wonder how many consumers know about it.

Considering such a rich source of educational material it has, it's rather odd that Apple doesn't promote it very much. I've used it quite a bit and spent hours looking through all the various lectures that are offered. One would figure that serious students would certainly be able to take advantage of all that knowledge compiled in one place that you could hardly find anywhere else on the internet. iTunes U is iTunes free hidden treasure and one of the main reasons schools should be considering the use of iPads.

Because you don't use iTunes or you have iTunes U option on the left menu of iTunes hidden?
