This sounds OK, but I am much more excited about more creative and innovative uses of podcasting rather than just sharing lectures. I found this podcast by Dr David B. Miller at the Univ of Connecticut tonight, he is having a weekly dialog Q&A with students in his psychology class, and podcasting it for everyone. This type of podcasting involves much more learner engagement, it seems, which I am certainly in favor of.

Well, one simple question: does it help to listen more than once to the point that someone has made? I'll repeat that: Does it help to listen more than once to the point that someone has made? Of course, it does. So if that can come again in the exact same form as the lecture it will help information be better remembered, provide more time for students to think and analyse and offer, through the blog the podcast might be on, an opportunity to come back over certain points and deepen understanding.

That enough for starters?

I have done some action research into blogging which has shown improvement on a qualitative level. Some more action research on podcasting is coming soon.

Ewan, I agree with you! And a toast to spreading the word.

Do you know if anyone has been able to demonstrate that freely available podcasts actually help students learn, without diminishing the value of their tuition? Without this kind of evidence, I fear that administrative worries would take precendence.

You said in your own blog that you were not sure how access might be granted to such materials. For what it's worth, I am of the opinion that the more open the lecturer / university the more they have to gain from increased informal relationships with a wider audience. Getting that subversion in universities is easier said than done, of course, but it's about time the critical mass was reached and the subversion carried out for the better!

As a lecturer, I think this is fabulous. I also hope it will somehow edit out the "umm"s, "hmm"s, and "yeah"s that somehow sneak in.




Wow. You'll be onto this, then?
