In August an exciting partnership between KET, the Kentucky Department of Education and the University of Kentucky was announced: Kentucky’s teachers, students, parents and communities now have access to free, state-specific academic content available through Kentucky on iTunes U!
At a press conference earlier this morning, Gov. Steve Beshear joined Shae Hopkins, KET’s executive director, Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday, and UK President Eli Capilouto to announce the launch.
Kentucky on iTunes U provides free curriculum and instruction resources, including school districts and other Kentucky providers, and can be accessed on a Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone or iPod. Content includes videos and instructional resources produced by KET, school districts and more.
As Shae told everyone gathered for the announcement: “KET has a long history of harnessing technology to enhance and extend the learning experience. Kentucky on iTunes U is a natural extension of that effort, and we’re excited to see Kentucky’s students and teachers benefit from this new partnership.”
