Podcasting for Education - Trendsetters, Tips and Tactics

I recently created yet another personal blog as a resource for teachers exploring online learning:
http://www.online-learning-and-teaching.blogspot.com/

My latest postings are focused on podcasting and provide articles, examples, trends, links and tips for podcasting for education.

The trends show how universities are using podcasts (and related technologies) to provide free courses on a global basis and also to market their offerings. For example, iTunes is now the repository for podcasts from Stanford University and "vodcasts" from Princeton University.

Another important trend is the convergence of other technologies with "podcasting". For example, "Apple recently introduced vodcasting technology in conjunction with the video-enabled iPod as a way of sharing video files over iTunes".

Hi Ron
Thanks so much for the podcasting updates. QAS is considering investigating this area in the coming year. The issue for us is how many would make use? how many have the resources? in addition to the appropriate usage.

The following article was given to me as an illustration of how it is becoming an effective tool in medicine:

I will be checking your links for a first round review of the technology.
