iTunes U

When opening iTunes, see the panel on the left titled "iTunes Store" and find the link to iTunes U below.  When you get to this page within iTunes, click on the link called "iTunes U: Learn More."  This will take you to a video that describes what types of content are available and how to search for exactly what you need.

To guide you in the right direction, try this:

Click on "Open University" under the "Featured Providers" menu on the left hand, bottom side of the screen.  Then, click on "Science" under "OU Learn" on the top left side of the screen.  There you will find a course titled "Earth and Life."  This course has great information on volcanoes and Tibet, both useful in understanding Plate Tectonics.

Next try searching in the very top right hand corner of iTunes for "plate tectonics."  Once you do this, you will want to filter your search in iTunes U (there will be a drop-down that reads "all results").  The top three items that come up in this search are good resources.  Two are podcasts from UC Berkeley and the third is a video from Intelecom.  Though you can download these to an iPod if you have access, you can just as easily watch them within iTunes.

After trying these two options, explore on your own to see how much information you are able to find.
