I’m very impressed at what the Cambridge University Office of Communication have been up to recently. There’s a wonderful selection of stuff on iTunes U (which is now easy to access directly on an iPhone or iPod Touch).

I’ve been pointed at this. I feel that I must mention the Streaming Media Service at Cambridge.
