  • Have the students search for podcasts related to discussion topics. For example, in Business Communications I like Grammar Girls Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing and for an etiquette lesson try Mr. Manners Quick and Dirty Tips for a More Polite Life—both free downloads at iTunes. For a desktop publishing course, Rookie Designer covers Photoshop tips and basic publishing tips.

    Provide feedback on assignments to entire class or individual students.
    Present lecture material in the discussion board or under Lectures (15-20 minutes, or modules).
    Require students to listen to podcasts and report to the class.

  • 12. My Tips
    Planning/scripting (or outlining) is important (3-15 minutes)
    Use instructor manuals.
    Be generic, i.e. don’t provide dates, tell students to refer to syllabus, etc.
    Provide text for special need students
    Provide background music.
    Produce episodes on a consistent basis.
    Find and download podcasts.
