Videos and iTunes

Students now have ready access to a wide range of mobile devices, which they use in everyday life, such as smart phones and video iPods. sigma is committed to creating new mathematics support resources that are widely accessible on a number of formats, giving students every opportunity to access them using technology they are comfortable with. Coventry University has become one of the few universities in Europe to distribute multimedia content in conjunction with Apple’s iTunes service, iTunes U. Using this service, sigma has posted videos on the CU section on iTunes which can be used to reinforce or increase your knowledge of mathematics. Simply follow this link to view the sigma videos.
