This paper probes a moment in the history of Media Studies education. My study enters iTunes U to explore how teaching, learning and scholarship are defined and operate in this environment. Podcasting is neither celebrated nor vilified, but situated within a much longer history of sound in education. Instead of positioning the iPod as a rupture in music, commerce and downloading practices thereby triggering the historical redundancy of analogue sound this platform becomes an opportunity to reconfigure the function of sound in media education. The interest remains, not Media Studies 2.0 or 1.0, but media literacy. Such a phrase and study does not require a designation or an imperative for platform migration. The development of media literacy remains contiguous, gradual, considered, contemporary, passionate and planned.
