iTunes U - Content Guidelines

Last Updated: 04/03/2017


The iTunes U administrators determine the appropriateness of the content for the public iTunes U site in accordance with its goals and mission. All content must abide by copyright and intellectual property right laws. To the best of each contributor’s knowledge, content must not include any falsehoods or misrepresentations, or material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense.

CU Boulder Branding

We encourage you to use CU Boulder’s branding when considering what content you would like to create and/or submit. The University of Colorado branding program brings consistency and coordination to its messages and visual images.

Quality Guidelines

Here are some questions to consider when developing CU Boulder communication/content:

  1. What do I hope to achieve with this communication? 
  2. Who is my audience? 
  3. How is my communication an example of “redefining” at the university? 
  4. Which “redefining” core message is the primary focus of my communication? 
  5. What additional “redefining” messages will I include in my communication? 
  6. Which CU Boulder brand attributes will drive the tone of this communication? 
  7. What do I want audiences to do as a result of this communication? 
  8. How does this effort complement other communications my audience might see? 
  9. How will I assess the effectiveness of my communication? 

While there are no size or length limitations either on the content repository or the iTunes U server, please keep audience interest in mind and irrelevant content to a minimum. CU Boulder will not populate content that violates copyright infringements or intellectual property laws. All content must be captioned.
