Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?

E-Learning Provocateur

Even in the e‑learning space, online courses are typically linear, virtual classes frequently replicate their bricks-and-mortar antecedents, while podcasts, of course, are quintessentially instructivist.

Text to Speech

Tony Karrer

As part of the eLearning Tour , Christopher von Koschembahr demonstrated a podcast where he conducted an interview. The interviewer was a female voice asking questions. She would ask a question and then he would respond. What was interesting is that the interviewer was produced using Text to Speech. You can listen to the result at the 12:23 mark of the first video on the eLearning Tour page. The effect was interesting. For short bursts of text, the computer generated voice was okay.
