The U on iTunes U - Terms

FairPlay (Apple Store DRM)

FairPlay is a digital rights management (DRM) technology created by Apple Inc., based on technology created by the company Veridisc. FairPlay is built into the QuickTime multimedia software and used by the iPod, iTunes, and iTunes Store. Every file purchased from the iTunes Store with iTunes (except songs to be distributed by the EMI Group starting in May 2007) is encoded with FairPlay. FairPlay digitally encrypts files and prevents users from playing these files on unauthorized computers.

Note, iTunes U doesn't support any FairPlay or any other DRM.

In putting recordings on iTunes U a digital format is used and an analog format can be converted using an analog-to-digital converter.
