Liberating iTunes Podcasts

Jon Udell has had problems getting iTunes U content in other Podcatching software (and problems with some over-zealous Mac fans who think that doing this is heresy).

If you want to do this, there’s instructions on extracting the URLs at this page courtesy of BlogicBlogger. Apple could choose, of course, to make this simple to do. However, it’s goal with iTunes U is to get more students using iTunes (and thus, hopefully, the iTunes Music Store and iPod) so it has no interest in doing so. Fair enough, of course – it is, after all, a business.
