      4
    • …refers to any software and hardware combination that allows automatic download of audio files (most commonly in MP3 format) for listening at the one’s convenience
      5
    • Interconnecting learning spaces; lecture theatre, the field, laboratory, seminar room, personal workspaces and learning management systems (LMS)
      6

    • How to plan a Podcast
      Choose a topic
      Develop segments for use across episodes of your podcasts
      Create a plan for each individual Podcast
    • Choosing a topic
      Most successful Podcasts are about a specific topic. Choose a topic you’re knowledgeable and passionate about.
      Gain an audience
      Say something new or interesting
      Maintain momentum
      E.g. weekly or even monthly
      Think about your audience
      e.g. old audience may want a quieter, more serious Podcast than young people.
    • Developing show segments
      Opening
      An intro to your podcast
      Stories or features
      Issues in the episode
      Interviews
      Discussion with experts
      Listener feedback
      Feedback from subscribers
      Sign-off
      End of show statement or phrase
    • How to record a Podcast
      Recording all at once
      You hit record button, record from start to finish.
      Easier but less flexibility.
      Recording in pieces
      You create each segment separately, the combine them into one track later.
      More control but more editing time.

    • Some emerging themes
      From case 1
      Guest lecturer and mastery of voice
      Enhanced note taking
      Reinforcement
      Selective ‘listening’
      Use of RSS feed
    • Guest lecturer and mastery of voice
      …I have a limited permanent record of it that the learner can continuously make reference to and listen very carefully to pronunciations and so on and so forth. It will not help to accelerate the process of understanding and acquiring competencies in development of another language.
    • Enhanced note taking
      …Sometimes where you are reflecting without podcasting, you see that you miss out some facts. With this you can’t. It’s like a journalist that cover an event.
    • Reinforcement
      …I find it [podcasts] very effective yah. I was able to quickly recall what happened and also comments from individuals telling different sessions we had so I find it very useful and I see it as an opportunity to relearn
      Selective ‘listening’
      we do it necessary downloading and playing it on other, of course I have to say on the computer…
    • Use of RSS feed
      I was interested…I opened one in the preparation…this is stressing programme, so to back to that what I heard, it just doesn’t make sense. I listened today and yesterday a little bit but the funny things actually why, because it came up itself and I don’t know how even I still have to ask…
    • Observations
      Resources are not accessible to students outside the module
      Lecturers in SoE or IS cannot access these resources without being a member of a site
      Self ranking of podcasts by frequency of use
      Potential of podcast reuse beyond a module
      Chance that these podcasts represent a topic of interest to students
      Chance both student & educator may want to share these resources or recommend them
    • Search Engines And Directories For Podcasts.
