About courses in Public Site Manager
Courses contain public, all-digital, iPad-based educational lectures, lessons, interviews, and so on, in a particular subject. Instructors can create and prepare content for courses by recording lectures, developing assignments, creating videos and podcasts, and much more. Instructors organize course content using iTunes U. Courses consist of info (including an overview, outline, and instructor profile), posts (including assignments), and materials (for example, audio and video).
When a course instructor is ready to include a course in your site and within the iTunes U catalog, the instructor chooses Add to Public Catalog from the Settings pop-up menu in iTunes U. After the instructor submits the course for inclusion in the catalog, iTunes U sends you an email so you can add the course to your site, customize your provider page, and publish the course with your site.
