Podcasting technology has been increasingly used in education. University of Houston is one of the pioneer schools in adopting podcasting technology in instructional delivery. Since the pilot project started in 2005, research studies have been conducted for several consecutive semesters. Each survey result indicated that almost half of the surveyed students did not use podcasts for their learning. They had equal opportunity as other classmates, but they did not take advantage of this new technology. This session will share with audiences the research findings why they did not use podcasts. We will also discuss the possible solutions to providing assistance to students in using this technology to address their learning needs.
