  3. 3. Multimedia-casting The idea of the article was to create a space that would make available to all of the faculty an xml document formatted in RSS 2.0, essentially, and a location where students could use that document's URL to subscribe to that particular course's Podcast. And as the technology progressed very fast the simple audio Podcast was quickly summoned to allow for video capabilities as well as many others. This space still evolves today. http://vnweb.hwwilsonweb.com.proxy.ulib.iupui.edu/hww/results/results_single_fulltext.jhtml;hwwilsonid=S1EWW3JHP2HBTQA3DIMCFF4ADUNGIIV0
  4. 4. Types of Podcasts Audio •Personal mp3 players synced up with your feed catcher allow for portability. Video •Collection of lectures and class materials. •Can be converted into the proper format for a Video iPod. “The world of Podcasting is evolving rapidly.” – O’Toole http://vnweb.hwwilsonweb.com.proxy.ulib.iupui.edu/hww/results/results_single_fulltext.jhtml;hwwilsonid=S1EWW3JHP2HBTQA3DIMCFF4ADUNGIIV0
  5. 5. Personal Reflection I think the use of podcasting in higher education is great. The fact that the educational technology department talked about in this article really had a terrific idea. The quick, easy use of video and audio on computers for students is 1. The use podcasting to upload lectures wonderful. online makes it easier for students to either watch classes they missed or go back and re-watch a previous lecture. 2. Expanding the application to iPods makes it easier for students to use. 3. This small feature can really improve the students knowledge and help Author: Gregory O'Toole M. A. improve grades!

  6. 6. The Power of Podcasting In this article it talks about a Spanish teacher who, instead of having his class take written notes, decided to use podcasts. Not shortly after his class seemed to come a live and participate more than they were before. Podcasting is spreading and becoming popular world wide and is a major hot topic dealing with Higher Education. http://vnweb.hwwilsonweb.com.proxy.ulib.iupui.edu/hww/results/results_single_fulltext.jhtml;hwwilsonid=2MG2IGOX2VX0ZQA3DIMCFF4ADUNGIIV0
  7. 7. Who is Using Podcasting • 29% of iPod/MP3 owners have downloaded podcasts, totaling more than 6 million people • Males and females are equally likely to download podcasts •Nearly half of 18- to 28-year-olds who own iPods/MP3 players have downloaded podcasts •About 20% of iPod/MP3 owners over the age of 29 have downloaded podcasts SOURCE: PEW INTERNET & AMERICAN LIFE PROJECT, APRIL 2005 “Digital or not, podcasts are still simply audio recordings. They pick up background noise like coughing or the scraping of chairs against the floor.” - Lum
  8. 8. Personal Reflection Until I read this article I did not realize how many people are actually using Podcasting! I had never even head of it until this class but now I see that is a growing worldwide application and is actually very useful for the everyday classroom! 1. More men than women are using podcasting 2. Over 6 million people who own iPods are using podcasting 3. When students use podcasting they become customers for these companies, such as Apple. Author: Lum, Lydia Source: Diverse Issues in Higher Education 23 no2 32-5 March 9 2006
  9. 9. Abandoning Cassette Tapes Purdue U. Will Podcast Lectures in Almost 50 Courses Purdue University use to tape all of their lectures and store them in the “The site has had a promising start. Library. Now they use podcasts to At the end of its first show their lectures online which week, students had downloaded 533 allows their students to sit in the class sessions” - Read comport of their own home and watch a class they missed! Students who visit the site can download individual lectures or subscribe to have a whole semester's lectures transferred to their portable MP3 players. http://vnweb.hwwilsonweb.com.proxy.ulib.iupui.edu/hww/results/results_single_fulltext.jhtml;hwwilsonid=ZVKKXGFJFROMNQA3DIMCFF4ADUNGIIV0
  10. 10. “PodPage” A “PodPage” is as web page students can go do to download orientation materials or sign up to receive recordings from the education school's Distinguished Lecture Series. There have been many worries that Podcasting will leave out students who cannot afford the devices needed. But Purdue hopes to dodge that potential problem by making its lectures available as streaming audio files that anyone with a computer can listen to.
  11. 11. Personal Reflection I think the idea of replacing 1. The use of podcasting could cassette taped lectures with the eventually replace going to class all together! use of podcasting is wonderful. I 2. Podcasting saves room in Purdue’s know that on days when I am library and in turn the student no longer has to pay for cassette sick I always worry about tapes. missing the lecture. If I knew 3. Podcasting gives students new options and allows them to be that I could get online and get involved in class even if they are all of the same information I sick. missed, it would take a lot of stress away!! It is a great idea. Author: Read, Brock Source: The Chronicle of Higher Education 52 no3 A32 S 9 2005
  12. 12. In Conclusion… After taking this class and reading these articles I truly do think that Podcasting is a wonderful new invention. I think here in the near future we will see it in many classrooms and I’m sure I will be using some form of it when I become a teacher. Just as technology in the classroom is growing, I believe this will grow too! Danielle Grant
