LGfL's iTunes U portal featuring a range of public-facing resources.

iTunes U is a powerful distribution system for everything from lectures to language lessons, films to labs, audiobooks to tours - an innovative way to get educational content into the hands of students.

LGfL has created an iTunes U portal to feature a range of publicly accessible LGfL resources in an easily accessible format available via iTunes. Audio and video files can be easily transferred to a range of mobile devices as podcast.
