Hi Mark: I think you are absolutely right. My sense is the that the iTunesU program was designed to snare those already doing some podcasting, try it out, then expand to the general university community. I think there has to be much more real communication between the IT folks and the teaching faculty--not only on issues like this, but in such things as the planning of future teaching spaces, etc. Mills

I hadn't heard of the podcasting initiative at George Mason, and a search of the university's website reveals no mention of Itunes U, the Marantz recorders, or anything else related to the pilot program. So once again I am amazed by the lack of communication between IT and teaching faculty. In this atmosphere, the only way to make progress in teaching with technology is to do what you're doing: pioneer your own method. Am I wrong in thinking that there is much, much more the Instructional Research Center should do to increase its outreach beyond the early adopters?
