    The Open University, the UK's open access university, which allows people to study from home in their own time, has been an international pioneer of degree courses online.
    The university, with more than 263,000 students in 23 countries, has become a record breaker on the iTunes U service, which provides a digital library of materials for university students and staff.

    Instead of music or movies, Apple's iTunes U provides a download service for lectures and resources from universities around the world.

    Top universities from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard in the US to Oxford and Cambridge in the UK have been making their materials available, with no charge to the user.
