NEW YORK, Feb. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs is proud to announce the launch of its site on iTunes U, featuring collections of the best of its resources on international affairs.
To access these videos, audios, and texts, go to www.carnegieitunesu.org.
Carnegie Council topics include Islam and the West, Climate Change, and Nuclear Proliferation.
Watch, read, or listen to distinguished speakers such as Ian Johnson on the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe; Garry Wills on the atomic bomb; Steven Solomon on the impending water crisis—and many more!
All of the Council's resources on iTunes U are free of charge and available to the public worldwide. The Council will be continually updating collections and adding new ones, such as resources on Afghanistan and the world's emerging powers.
Accessed by millions of people around the world, iTunes U distributes materials from colleges and universities and also offers a "Beyond Campus" section, featuring museums, libraries, broadcasting stations, and educational institutions such as the Carnegie Council.
"We are very excited about joining iTunes U," says Carnegie Council president Joel Rosenthal. "The Carnegie Council has been audio and video podcasting via iTunes for several years now, and the audios regularly rank among iTunes' top ten most downloaded government and nonprofit audio podcasts. Our offerings on iTunes U, however, are carefully selected collections of materials on specific issues. We believe that this will be a boon to students, educators, and anyone interested in continuing education, since they will be able to focus on particular topics."
The Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs (www.carnegiecouncil.org), established in 1914 by Andrew Carnegie, is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing understanding of the relationship between ethics and international affairs.
