Have you seen this article?
You should also be able to set it up to sync to your iPod from under the iPod's iTunes U configuration tab in iTunes.

Thanks for your advice planb77 but when I do as instructed in the link I get an "Introducing the new iTunes U" message along with, "IOS 5 is required". It's simply been disabled to anyone pre IOS5.
Not very inclusive of Apple.

If nothing else, can you still sync iTunes U content via iTunes?

Here is the official message from Apple. Everyone who doesn't have IOS 5 is excluded. I have lodged a message with Apple as it's just not good enough.
- You can use the iTunes U app on iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch with iOS 5 and iTunes 10.5.2 or later.

Don't use the app, simply keep syncing iTunes U content the old fashioned way.

Tried doing it through iTunes, you end up with the lessons/documentaries/lectures etc in your music rather than the proper iTunes U zone. Better upgrade to that iPad 2 then, that's the way they want it.
Aside from that I see that in iTunes the news subscriptions icon is Rupert Murdoch's "The SUN". Says it all, Jobs ethics have been flushed away if they ever existed other than in the 60's. Grump over.

I think I found a way - convert the courses to movies. I just got an old iPod Touch 2nd Gen not knowing anything - didn't know that it wouldn't be compatible with iOS 5 and didn't know the app wouldn't be compatible with older iOS. I'm usually a PC person where you can always buy an OS upgrade no matter how high.
Anyway - in iTunes, highlight the iTunes U course you want. Click on the Advanced Tab at the top then click Create iPod or iPhone Version. This converts the course to a regular movie. It takes a LOOONG time (at least on my older computers) but it does eventually work. How long - well a 3 minute "course" took about 45 minutes to convert on my old netbook - hope it will go faster on my desktop once I get the RAM upgraded. It won't look like anything is happening, except under the category Playlist on the left hand side of iTunes, you will see a listing called Converting. Once the conversion is done, the course will show up in your Movies listing, then can be transferred to your iPod.
Hope this helps - it certainly made me happy to figure out a way to do this.
