Home My Story Portfolio iPad Bookshelf Social Media February 1, 2006 TechKnowledge 2006 tags: podcasting I am in Denver at TechKnowledge 2006. Yesterday, I gave a presentation on podcasting and training. hope that I can figure out some way to keep in touch with them and learn about their podcasting efforts. Some of the sessions that I have been attending has really got me thinking about how blogging and podcasting can co-exist in the corporate training world with traditional elearning efforts. think that it really isnt that big of a stretch.


Moodle Journal

Last week I decided to start using a podcast approach as part of my regular Moodle material. decided against the usually highly mobile podcast approach, as I know very few of the students actually own one. have incorporated these as part of my level 4 groups work in Object Oriented Design. The course is delivered as a series of lectures accompanied by detailed course notes and assessed using a portfolio approach of exercises. It’s the presentation in class of these exercises that I have decided to make available as mp3’s.

Podcast or videocast, which do you prefer?

Moodle Journal

Do you podcast you lectures? From my own perspective, if am driving or travelling on public transport, then yes I would listen to a podcast, however if was sat in front of a computer, then I would appreciate something more visual. have started this in a small way but from the system logs the results were not encouraging. Anyway I started to give the whole idea some serious thought recently. The feasibility of videoing and editing a whole lecture on a regular basis would for me be unrealistic.

Friday, December 01, 2006 Podcast usage in post-secondary settings is growing! Are you interested in Podcasts? If you go visit their site youll see that one of there most popular postings is one where they list a whopping 134 sites containing academic podcasts. These are especially interesting and useful because each item on the list represents an entire academic terms worth of podcasts in one course. Do you work in post-secondary education? think this is AWESOME! For example, pretend you are a professor that teaches a third year intro to biochemistry course.

The changing Web

Learning with e's

My own students create a lot of their own content during their study, usually in the form of podcasts, videos, wiki and blog content, and are encouraged to share these publicly online to gain additional feedback. It truly is the ‘architecture of participation’ (Barsky and Purdon, 2006) and demands active engagement as a natural part of its character (Kamel Boulos and Wheeler, 2007).

LCB Question for December 2006: Panel Discussion

Simply Speaking

I had posted my personal response to the Learning Circuit Board’s question of the month for December 2006 , and so had one of my colleagues, Anil Mammen. So when we wanted to do a post from Tata Interactive Systems’s perspective, we decided to do a panel discussion and post it as a podcast instead of doing a written piece. I was part of the panel discussion. It was interesting to discuss views as opposed to writing out one’s own. It was more informal, more collaborative, more building on each others’ thoughts, more spontaneous, and more fun overall.

Podcasting for E-Learning: Inflecting the voice?

The E-Learning Curve

In yesterday's post , I discussed the importance of narrative pace to audio podcasting. However, pace alone is not enough to encourage listener engagement with your podcast. So, the second heuristic for writing content for podcasts is: Anticipate how your audience could interpret a word and understand how it might affect interpretation of your meaning. This is a good podcast."

Just saw a post by David Warlick that said: The CECA 2006 conference is giving each attendee a free iPod Nano. In addition, a team of podcasters has been assembled with missions to record specific presentations, with permission from presenters, and make them available as part of a central podcast feed. As a result, conference attendees, after the conference, will be able to subscribe to the CECA feed and download all of those podcast presentations to take home with them.

Click on the link if you'd rather listen to the podcast of this post, Beyond iPoding , you can find it here. One example is podcasting for learning. It was first thought of as great way to train but now some pundits are warning that “telling ain't training” and that podcasting isn't all that it is cracked up to be. The answer is that podcasting needs to be thought of differently than just recorded training. Podcasting can be used for far more than just listening to a lecture. Podcasts is appropriate for a variety of purposes.

Biases that eLearning 2.0 Faces (or What We Are Up Against)

Tony Karrer

approaches: Before you "optimize eLearning" through the use of Wikis, Blogs, PodCasts, video feeds, IMs, XML, SOAP, AJAX, and other "new"/"improved" methods, it is really important to understand: 1. PodCasts: Will you have professional announcers recording things, or will you subject your audience to amateur, scratchy, poorly organized rantings? Saw a post in the eLearningAll group that expresses a lot of the biases that exist in the world of eLearning around eLearning 2.0 How can these "optimize eLearning" 2. How will you manage them 3. How will you measure success 4.

On my iPOD - 155 podcasts - both video and audio. I get, on average, 10 new episodes each day. I finally figured out why I am now only finishing 1 book a month - RSS feeds. On Google Reader - 39 subscriptions. If I don't read the posts 1 weekday, I have over 100 posts to read. At some point I'll figure out how to create a listfeed to connect to this blog. On - 38 items. I'm limiting this to professional interests. Add 20 more sites regularly viewed from IE favorites, eMail - 3 accounts (I'm only talking personal accounts). It's a wonder I get outside and talk to anyone.

Playing in the Digital Sandbox

In the Middle of the Curve

The fear that we'll learn how to podcast and it will turn out to just be a fad. Paul Fender hints that it's not just the desire for control that prevents us from adopting web 2.0 tools, but fear of failure. The fear that we'll stick up a wiki and no one will use it. The fear that we'll start blogging and run out of things to say (not a problem for me ). And, as illustrated by the too lengthy story above. the fear that we'll go out on a limb and others will think we're not perfect; that we some times make mistakes; that people will think we're really just full of bu!!sh@#.
