I have many iTunes U videos that take a lot of space on my disk. I don't really need them on my disk but I would like to keep their reference in my iTunes U library so I can re-download them when needed.

How can I do that?

  • I haven't checked this myself, but isn't there a "Downloads" or "Purchased" tab in iTunes U, that you can easily get previous downloads? That is possible with music, apps, etc. so I'm guessing it would work with iTunes U. Commented Nov 22, 2012 at 2:36
  • I want to have it in my list with the option "get" as I had it before downloading.

Delete the videos. Then right-click on the course title and select Show all available items. This will restore the complete list of available episodes.

You can also do this by option-clicking on the disclosure arrow of the course. The arrow needs to be closed before option-clicking in order for this to work.
