Until recently we hosted our RSS feeds for iTunes U on our mobile me account. As this will cease to be an option we have had to relocate our feeds.

 

Will users who have subscribed to our feeds be automatically subcribed to the new feeds? Or is there something we could do to enable a seemless transition to the replacement feeds?

 

There is no function within the iTunes U Public HTML editor to change the adress of any feeds that I can see.

 

Any advice?

    Greetings;

    If you currently have Apple Hosted Feeds for your existing iTunes U site, you won't lose that ability with the demise of Mobile Me.  iTunes U content is unrelated to Mobile Me.  I've attached a link from Apple that addresses the "changing you URL feed" question, should you need it.  All the best...

    Greetings;

    I want to make sure I'm understanding your situation so that I don't mislead you.  I'm assuming that you've had your institution's iTunes U site for a while and that when you initially set it up you chose to host your feed through Apple's servers and log in and maintain your site using your Apple ID. 

     

    Apple hosted feeds for COLLECTIONS is no longer an option for new iTunes U sites.  But for those who already have that ability, nothing will change when Mobile Me goes away.  Mobile Me and your iTunes U content are in no way related.  You'll still access and maintain your site using Public Site Manager, logging in with you current Apple ID. 

     

    Hope this helps!  All the best to you...

    Got it!  Thanks for the response.  Hopefully Duncan or one of the other Apple Engineers who monitor these discussions will respond soon!  All the best to you...

    One other avenue to try...Have you tired sending your question to the following address?  Others have received responses using this address.  All the best...
