    17. 29. Evidence from SPIDER <ul><li>“ there are a large number of medical schools and medical education groups who produce both pod casts and vod casts for medical students. the most usefull of these have been podcasts from the university of aberdeen which cover a wide range of topics, and a group called pod medics who do revision vodcasts. i tend to use these for revision, with the vodcasts when im out and not doing anything (sat on a train etc), and the podcasts when im at the gym, driving etc (I use a waterproof mp3 player to swim with while i revise)” </li></ul><ul><li>“ I looked for Leicester stuff on iTunes U but there wasn’t any. I wanted to see what the lectures were like. With £9000 fees starting next year, students are going to want to know what they’re paying for. I didn’t even think of looking on YouTube for Leicester lectures because YouTube is rubbish, that’s where you look at kittens on a treadmill.” </li></ul>
