Geoscience and iTunesU

If you have not checked out iTunesU I suggest you do so. There are several very good podcasts related to topics in geoscience that can be used in your courses if you’re an instructor or provide additional information if you’re a student. Download iTunes for Windoze or OS X, go to the iTunes store, click on the iTunesU link in the upper left corner, and start exploring. The Yale science podcast has some very interesting material. Or check out offerings from PBS, like KQED Science : “Science of Big Waves” or “Earthquakes: Breaking New Ground”. Oh, it’s all free too!
