Apple says people have downloaded more than 1 billion items from iTunes U, which features free books, lectures and other information from schools, libraries and museums around the world.

Apple Inc. said Thursday that there are now single iTunes U courses with more than 250,000 students enrolled in them. Eddy Cue, senior vice president of Internet software and services, calls this a "phenomenal shift in the way we teach and learn."

More than 60 percent of the iTunes U app downloads are outside the U.S.
