iTunes U courses are RSS feeds, so you will need:
Make sure that in either case it can display H.264/MPEG-4 videos.

text/rssso may not display nicely in the browser.
If you have access to a computer with iTunes, go to the iTunes Store and find the iTunesU 'casts you want to save. Drill down to the class's page (it lists all the episodes in the class, and lets you play them if you want), look on the left under the main class icon. There should be two buttons: Subscribe Free and Get All.
Get All will download the episodes to local machine. Once they are downloaded, go into the iTunesU section in Library (left pane in iTunes main program window.)
Once the iTunesU pane loads, right-click (PC) or ctrl-click (Mac) any of the episodes, and select "Show in Windows Explorer" (PC) or "Reveal in Finder" (Mac). The directory with all of the episodes will open.
Now that you know where all of the episodes are you can copy them to removable media and move them to your own system.
