The U on iTunes U - Terms

Autocasting

Autocasting is an automated form of podcasting that allows bloggers and blog readers to generate audio versions of text blogs from RSS feeds. Autocasting software uses XML parsers, TTS (text-to-speech) engines, and audio conversion utilities to convert text blogs into audio files that can be placed on a blog for download, synchronized to a portable audio device, or played on a desktop computer.

Autocasting will allow users of iTunes U to convert their text into audio that will be placed on iTunes U to download to their iPod, or desktop.
