Podcast Lectures??


I was flipping through the neatoday magazine (National Education Association Today) and I noticed an article titled the "The iPod Professor".

Being that I love my iPhone, the title grabbed my attention.

Here's what the article said:



....In a recent study, university students who downloaded a podcast lecture
scored significantly higher on a content exam than kids who actually
attended the same lecture...

Why didn't they do this when I was in undergrad?

Why don't my graduate professors do this?

The professor in the article said that kids are programmed differently than 20 years ago. --True!

The article also highlights that having the podcast allows students to replay lectures. [It can also help with reviewing your notes].

I think this is an awesome idea!!
