iTunes U gets syncing tab in iTunes 9

itunes-logo-1I just downloaded a new and improved version of iTunes. When syncing my iPhone I notice a few new tabs, one of which is labeled “iTunes U”. This is a welcome feature to sort iTunes U content out of the podcast bin. Now you can choose to sync:

  • all from all or selected collections
  • all unplayed  iTunes U from all or selected collections,
  • 1,3,5,10 of most recent unplayed all or selected collections
  • 1,3,5,10 of least recent unplayed all or selected collections
  • all new from all or selected collections
  • 1,3,5,10 of most recent new from all or selected collections
  • 1,3,5,10 of least recent new from all or selected collections

Most of my previously downloaded iTunes U items were tagged as “Movies”. They can be changed by following these steps:

Ctl + mouse click on the item and choose “Get” Info->
Options->
Media Kind->
Then choose “iTunesU”

This will organize them under the iTunes U item in the Library.

Very handy.

    Thank you so much! I have been searching everywhere to figure out how to convert all of my previously downloaded iTunes U files, and the only answer I’ve found was “download them all again”. I just got everything moved, and it will be much easier than scrolling through separate playlists. Thanks again!
