Stanford On ITunes' Is For Everybody
01.24.06


NEW YORK - 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. No need to pay the $31,200 tuition. No need to live on campus. No need even to be a student. The nearly 500 tracks that constitute “Stanford on iTunes” are available to anyone willing to spend the few minutes it takes to download them from the Internet.

While a number of other universities are now using iTunes to distribute class-specific content to their students, including Duke University, Drexel University’s School of Education and the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, Stanford is the first to make a substantial amount of recorded university events available to the public at large.

“One of Stanford’s primary missions is to educate the public,” says Scott Stocker, director of Web communications. Allowing the public to access the content “just felt like the right thing to do,” says Cindy Pearson, director of alumni programs.

Duncan Beardsley of Stanford’s class of 1959 says he has already downloaded about 30 tracks from Stanford on iTunes since the public launch last October. A lecture called “Trials and Truth” from a series entitled “Classes Without Quizzes” originally piqued Beardsley’s interest. He’s also downloaded lectures about global warming, why baseballs have stitches and correlations between how baboons and humans live.

Stanford has big plans for adding new content going forward. One example is recordings of sports events, says Pearson. November’s Stanford versus Berkeley football game, known on campus as “The Big Game,” is already videotaped and mailed to alumni clubs overseas. The plan is to use iTunes new video capabilities so folks will be able to watch the game without waiting for the package to come in the mail, says Pearson.

Walking tours of the campus might also be in Stanford on iTunes’ future, she says. The public could “tour” Stanford’s campus or art collection from home. Or, a visitor to campus could bring an iPod or MP3 player, or borrow one from the school, and set out on a guided audio tour.

It’s catching on. Over 130,000 tracks were downloaded from the site in the first two weeks, says Stocker. Through the end of the fall semester in December, on average, more than 15,000 tracks were downloaded per week.

Londa Schiebinger, the new director of the Institute for Research on Women and Gender (IRWG), wants to make it the "go to" center for gender studies everywhere.


Stanford University has appointed two nationally renowned professors in the area of African American studies, Lawrence Bobo and Marcyliena Morgan, to its faculty. Bobo and Morgan, who are married, will pursue scholarship in their own departments as well as at the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity (CCSRE).

Students explore Judaism and Violence
The undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in the seminar Judaism and Violence hunkered over photocopies of the Babylonian Talmud as they took turns parsing the rabbinic commentaries in Hebrew and Aramaic. The class is taught by Religious Studies Professor Charlotte Fonrobert, who explores how Judaism fits into the debate about religion as a source of violence.

The really sad part is Stanford U houses a location for almost all of the original Third Reich information in their Hoover Institute Holocaust Center.Much of which has never been seen by non Jews; and is only used by Jew PhD professors to support their cause.

Sounds like a plan. Let me finish my dissertation on the jew problem first, get that online as a reference point, and then we'll take it from there, ok?

It would take me some time, but I would be willing to contribute to that.
