shows, episodes within shows, and chapters within episodes. If you stop playing a podcast and
return to it later, the podcast begins playing where you left o.
iTunes U is a part of the iTunes Store featuring free lectures, language lessons, and more, which
you can download and enjoy on iPod nano. iTunes U content is organized by collections, items
within collections, authors, and providers. You only see an iTunes U icon on the Home screen if
you synced iTunes U content from your iTunes Library.
Podcast shows and iTunes U collections appear in chronological order, so you can play them in
the order in which they were released. A blue dot marks unplayed shows and episodes. When you
nish listening to a podcast episode or iTunes U program, the next unplayed or partially played
episode begins automatically.
