Private and Public Content
Suffolk University maintains two iTunes sites: private and public. Content on the private site is restricted to current members of the Suffolk University community and may only be accessed through the MySuffolk portal and Blackboard. Content posted to the public site is available to the general public.
University policy dictates that all classroom or course related content may only appear in the private site. Until further notice, entire courses may not be presented on the public site; however, individual lectures may be considered and approved by the iTunes administrator for posting on the public site. Faculty interested in offering course content on the private site should contact their academic technology department for more details and instruction.
Faculty, staff, or students may create content for the public site. Public site content may be educational or informational in nature regarding campus services and resources. It may also include news and topics of interest to the general public. Those interested in creating content for the public site may contact the iTunes U representative in their school/area for more information:
Compliance with University Policies
All podcasts must comply with all of the following Suffolk University policies:

All public content will only be uploaded upon receipt of a valid Suffolk University copyright release form by the iTunes U representative. A copy of each valid form must be delivered to the iTunes U administrator.
Posting and Removal of Content
Suffolk University reserves the right to decline or remove a podcast.
- poor audio or video quality

Archiving and Preserving Content
Although Suffolk University will facilitate posting of content on iTunes U, it will not be responsible for ensuring that content is preserved or archived.
