Why can't I watch iTunes U videos on my iPad?

My iPad is running iOS 4.2.1. iTunes is 10.1 on a Mac.
I've googled this for hours. No luck. The hits I've found have told me to do things I've already tried. I posted to some iDevice forums. No answers.
I downloaded some iTunes U videos to the Mac, synced, saw the progress message that they were being transfered, but they didn't show up in the iPod app. (I also checked the videos app. They're not there, either.)
Along the left of the iPod app, in the Library, the categories I see are Music, Podcasts, Audiobooks and Videos. There's no iTunes U category. And the videos didn't get sorted into any of the other categories (all empty, because I don't generally sync music to my iPad).
However, when I plug the iPad into the Mac and twirl it open in iTunes, I can see the videos ON MY IPAD in an iTunes U category. So they ARE on my iPad. I just can't access them.
After trying to sync a couple of times, I decided to just download the videos directly to my iPad. So I went into the iTunes app, downloaded several videos (HD and SD). I saw the progress bars complete. But STILL no videos in the iPod app or the Videos app.
I've tried rebooting.
Otherwise, my iPad is working fine.
Anyone know what's going on?
