What is Authenticated AU iTunes?

Faculty now have another secure means of delivering content to students. Each instructor of record will be able to upload podcasts that will be available only to students enrolled in his/her particular class section. 

Can I combine two sections or different classes on one channel?

No; one class per channel only. This is a limitation of iTunes, and not something we have control over.

How do I get channel for my class on Authenticated AU iTunes?

Fill out the online form (link below). You will need the Banner CRN available at the top of the roster in Blackboard Toolkit for the class.
