Podcasting is an easy and popular way to share media with students. You can think of a podcast as a little audio magazine distributed on the internet. When a student subscribes to a podcast, they automatically receive each episode, just like a magazine subscription. Students can listen to the podcast on any computer (PC or Mac) or on a portable media player.
Take all the fun of podcasting and add in still images or video and you've got an enhanced podcast. We're currently collaborating with DoIT's Engage Program to explore
the potential for enhanced podcasting on campus. Here are some early examples of enhanced podcasts. Take a look, let us know what you think, and please get in touch if you'd like to explore the potential for enhanced podcasting in your classes.
