I think maybe we need a vocabulary reboot, because it seems to me that if you are downloading something from iTunes, whatever it is, it is not a "course" (it might be a "video lecture" or some such thing). That's because what we typically think of as a course involves (at a minimum) a cohort of participants, amybe an instructor, and a sequence of events. It's not just a download of a bunch of multimedia. Or - is it? Theh (I would say) we need a new term for that thing we used to do, which we called a course way back then.
