How does podcasting or vodcasting challenge the current "talking head" model of classroom lectures ? If all lectures are available via video and audio, do students need to go to class ? How often? Why? How can they be kept in class?
Who owns the content , the school, the instructor, the user? Can this content be used outside of the university community? How is it protected or secured to the owner or subscriber?
Who's going to edit the content? What are the guidelines for editing? What's real - what's not?
How is copyrighted material tracked and/or verified?

How to Post a Podcast
Making it available via the Web
Posting your file(s) on a server with a publicly accessible URL.
Post to a WebBlog
Create an RSS feed.
To accomplish this, you must post your MP3 file in a web folder on a web server. Then create the feed. FeedBurner is one free tool you can use.
Making it available via iTunes
Submitting the URL for your RSS feed to iTunes
Posting to a Blog
Your podcast is basically just a blog with audio. Podcasting uses the same feed technology as many blogs. Your audience receives the audio file through the feed in addition to the text.
Usually each blog entry/post is one episode of your podcast. The post consists of your show notes (an outline of the episode’s contents), links to any related information or sources and probably a link to the MP3 file for the episode. The feed from your blog tells the subscriber’s podcatcher where to download the audio file.
One of the great things about listening to podcasts is that you can subscribe to what’s called an RSS feed. Once you’re subscribed, your podcatcher will check the feed regularly for new episodes. When a new episode is posted, the podcatcher will automatically download the audio file for you to listen to.
An RSS feed is nothing more than a specially formatted text file. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication.
You don’t need to worry about understanding RSS or writing out the feed file by hand. There are ways to create it automatically.
