3 class periods that run 60 minutes each.
The Utah Stories Project at iTunes U is designed to collect stories about Utah places, events, history, people, and happenings from students, teachers, and residents. These stories can be "published" in the form of audio, enhanced audio, video, or PDF to Utah's K12 iTUnes U page. Many of these stories will be able to be tied to a geo-location by giving the latitude and longitude in GPS coordinates of the event or place.
