      • “ I did not know there was another religion besides Hindu and Buddhist in the world. As you talked about the true Bible and all the things that are happening according to the Bible, I believe it totally. In our ancestor's religion there are no such things mentioned about the future, there is only the cycle of reincarnation. But it is so nice to believe that Jesus loves us personally and gives us the assurance of eternal life. Bible must be a wonderful book. Please help me get one copy.”

    • 24. Radio in Africa
      • “ Radio is by far the most important, most used, and most trusted medium of communication in East Africa. People use it both for accessing information and for entertainment. It is an indispensable tool for learning about dangers to community, obtaining advice on a variety of issues, and fueling the daily conversations carried on by people in an oral society. Many other institutions, including governments and churches, do not share the same level of trust as radio. People in rural communities report a whole host of difficulties that they must deal with on a daily basis. . . “

      • Allen Steele, CEO of AMN
      example: media synergy
    • 29. Definition of Convergence
      • How producers of media and consumers interact on a social level and use various media platforms to create new experiences, new forms of media and content that connect us socially.

    • 37. Definition of podcasting
      • Podcasting is a term used to describe a collection of technologies for automatically distributing audio and/or video programs over the Internet using a publisher/subscriber model.
      • It differs from earlier online delivery of audio because it automatically transfers the digital media files to the user’s computer for later use.
    • 38. Podcasting
      • “ Podcasting” combines two words: “iPod” and “broadcasting”.
      • You don’t need an iPod to listen to a podcast! Any PC will be fine!
      • Alternative terms would be “audio blog” or “audioblogging”
    • 39. Podcasting - What It Is
      • A podcast is really just an mp3 audio file that is distributed via an RSS feed (by linking the mp3 file to a blog posting or to a web page).
      • Current “podcatching” software, such as iTunes , allows the user to subscribe to an RSS feed ; the software will automatically download new podcasts when they become available.
    • 40. Podcasting – The Listener
      • Subscribes to the RSS feed for the blog using “podcatching” software (such as iTunes) ONE TIME ONLY
      • New podcasts are automatically downloaded to the user’s PC – and can be played on the computer
      • The mp3 files can be “synched” to a portable mp3 player, such as an iPod, for anytime, anyplace listening – mobile learning – “m-learning”.
