Downloading college lectures

Imperial College in London, one of the world's top ranking science institutions, is putting lectures and materials on a free online downloading service for students, called iTunes U.

It is adding to the resources and entire degree courses that are available on the internet.

Henry Rzepa, professor of computational chemistry, says that it helps staff and students to become part of a global network.

He says science will improve as a result. Sam Gibbs, in the final year of his PhD in molecular microbiology, says such online services allow students to access a range of lectures and resources from universities around the world.
