Right now they are grouped by subject. For instance, Indian Education/HighSchool/. The HighSchool directory contains several PDF files with various titles, etc.
If I understand correctly I simply point to the directory listing? For example, http://opi.mt.gov/pdf/IndianEd/Curric/Grade1/ ?
All I want is to be able to have our PDF's show up in the content area of X.
This is an example iTunes content area from Virginia, http://deimos3.apple.com/WebObjects/Core.woa/Browse/vdoe.brpbs.org.1899420946.01 899420948
They have a mix of Video and PDF. How does one get the PDF files up!
Seems like it should be simple but no replies tell me that it ain't!
Certainly not in the admin manual!
Sorry I haven't replied to your posts for a few days. I've been "knee deep" in the new Site Manager revisions. I'm liking it so far, but so of the "Description" data doesn't translate from the old environment to the new, so I'm having to do a little "copy & paste".
We have pages on iTunes U that contain both audio/video materials and PDF files (see attached link). Is this what you're wanting to accomplish? If so, you can create a new "Collections" page and upload your PDF's to that new Collection.
If I'm missing something in what you're wanting to accomplish, let me know.
Here's the link:

To add a PDF to a collection that is RSS feed based, you would add the PDF as an item within the RSS feed and include type="application/pdf" to the item enclosure.
<itunesu:category itunesu:code="100100" />
<enclosure url="http://example.com/podcasts/myeconomics101,transcript1.pdf" type="application/pdf" />
For more information on crafting RSS feeds for iTunes U you can also review the following resources

Thank you to all who posted! Now I better understand how I can populate my iTunes U site with PDF files!
Was able to get one on the site! Whoooo Hoooo!
Off we go populating!
