This is great news indeed. The Stanford iTunes courses are probably few of the best around! If Swift is taken up by major universities, it will speed up its adoption as well.

I'm just bummed out at the fact that there's no iTunes-U app on the AppleTV 4.

I'm going to be doing the same next year at mine. Is it straight forward?
My professor is teaching it well and the book he uses is straightforward. My professor has a big love for Apple. He used to work for Apple and was hired by Steve Jobs himself. Also attends WWDC. Great guy, great class.

Note the multiple prerequisites. This course is not for beginners or people who've just learned the bare basics of programming. Know your algorithms and objects very well first.
