Audio-visual educational material has come a long way from the days of 16 mm films and film strips with a "beep" each time the slide was supposed to be changed.

The Nebraska Department of Education has pulled visual aids into the 21st century, unveiling a link to Apple's iTunes U to distribute informational videos worldwide, via downloads to computers, iPhone or iPod Touch devices.

Nebraska is one of 10 states that began working on the project with Apple Inc., about a year ago to initiate mobile learning at the K-12 level.

First up are informational videos for Nebraska educators about federal education requirements, federal programs and new state reading and mathematics standards.

Model world language lesson plans in Spanish, as well as videos featuring songs and dances in Spanish are available, as well as model lesson plans in German and French.

And that's just the start.
