In the 2005 summer term, Potsdam´s Hasso Plattner Institute started offering courses using a brand new Internet video transmission and recording system tele-TASK. With the help of this system, users of PCs or iPods can follow university lectures online. All you need is go to www.tele-task.de and follow the content live or, two hours after the lecture, download it as a recording. This works with all types of Internet access and with the help of "Real Player", the free software that is easily integrated into all common forms of WWW-Browser.
Many of the recordings are available for download on iTunes U, the iTunes platform where renowned universities present educational content for free.
