  • 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.

    • 7. Really Simple Syndication (RSS)
      Allows Internet users to subscribe to websites that have provided RSS feeds; these are typically sites that change or add content frequently

    • 9. Implications for Learning
      Flexibility in class schedule; no more missed classes.
      Increased interaction with the instructor instead of focused note taking.
      Supplement to traditional class notes (another channel for material review ).
      Audio resources for visually impaired students (assist auditory learners).
      Portability enables multitasking such as listening to lectures again while exercising. 1/01/07
    • 10. What to Podcast
      Introduce yourself at the beginning of the semester.
      Create weekly announcements in course management system. Switch between written and audio announcements.
      Create brief instructions (3-7 minutes) for assignments.
      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.
