The U on iTunes U - Terms

Aggregator

An Aggregator is a client software that uses a web feed to retrieve syndicated web content such as blogs, podcasts, mainstream mass media websites, and vlogs. Aggregators reduce the time and effort it takes to update websites. Once you subscribe to a feed, an aggregator is able to check for new content at user-determined intervals and retrieve the update. iTunes will act as an aggregator when users sign into the iTunes U portal and then can subscribe podcast feeds.

In the future development their will be an aggregator for other operating systems, such as Linux, and Unix.
