The U on iTunes U - Terms


The name Atom applies to two different standards that are related. The Atom Syndication Format is an XML language used for web feeds, while the Atom Publishing Protocol is a simple HTTP-based protocol for creating and updating Web resources.

iTunes uses RSS 2.0 plus some additional tags. Note that the additional tags are not required, but are recommended where needed in order to provide the best possible user experience like in iTunes. iTunes U will generate & manage the RSS feeds, so not additional coded required.
