Abstract

Learning at any time and in any place has been bolstered by podcasting. In fact, podcasting has become the rage because of the advent of Ipods and ITunes. Now, academic content is available for download just like music; the biggest vendor is none other than, ITunesU. Attendees may be surprised to learn about the different educational venues in which podcasting is being used. How to create a podcast will be shared. Who is using podcasts and why they are being used will be discussed. Of particular interest, the relationship between training and/or learning and podcasting is explored. Some have described podcasting as telling or talking. Some dispute that telling/talking constitutes training and/or learning. Does the curricular and instructional design employed influence the effectiveness of a podcast? Attendees will interact with each other in this session. The presenter will share practical knowledge and elicit best practices from the audience.
