I have 6 courses in iTunes-U loaded into iTunes on my iMac. The latest is WWDC 2012. I can see all those courses on my wife's MacBook, but only the other 5 using the Video app on our iPad.

Can anyone explain this and help me to get all the iTunes-U courses so that I can watch WWDC 2012 on the iPad?

Have you had any luck? I downloaded on my PC, and then synced to the iPad, but I can't seem to figure out where to play them at! – RonLugge Aug 28 '12 at 18:37
Nothing so far. I watch the ones I can see on the iPad, and use the MacBook for the rest. It feels like a simple bug, maybe from some compatibility in the way bonjour is being used. – MarkAurelius Sep 3 '12 at 8:31
Something I eventually discovered was that when I moved over to using my personal ipad, they started working. It may be that the appleId that downloaded them is the only one that can watch them. (Or just that iPad 1 can't run them?) – RonLugge Sep 4 '12 at 3:07
This iPad is the latest. – MarkAurelius Sep 14 '12 at 6:59
As an update, I think we tracked it down to some of the restrictions being set through the MDM service we use. – RonLugge Sep 15 '12 at 22:49
