Ithaca, NY The University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI) is not only the home of the popular Islandora repository software ("...uniquely combines the Drupal and Fedora open software applications to create a robust digital asset management system that can be fitted to meet the short and long term collaborative requirements of digital data stewardship"), but is also home to many interesting digital collections. Now you can access many of them through iTunes U. Several of particular interest are podcasts of 2009 and 2010 Red Island Repository Institute presentations including hands-on Fedora Repository architecture and Islandora.
Other collections include the UPEI Magazine which featuries a glimpse into the history, culture and campus life at UPEI http://vre2.upei.ca/upeimag/, AVC Veterinary College Teaching Hospital "interactive rounds," and a series of "Basic Academic Skills" videos aimed at secondary and post-secondary students who want to learn more about how to research and write.
