Podcasting for E-Learning: Benefits of Digital Audio

The E-Learning Curve

The first principle of digital audio is: Digital audio is the study of discrete values. This characteristic is very important: it allows us to manage audio information very efficiently.

Exploring Podcasting for E-Learning (and new podcast episode released)

The E-Learning Curve

I'm exploring the medium of podcasting at the moment. I've previously discussed podcasting in general here , but in my view there can (and should) be more to the medium than the well-trodden 'single voice-over discusses topic' - what I call the 'fireside chat' - podcast format. To compel this involvement - and to deserve it - the material emerging from a loudspeaker must maintain a high level of interest throughout. Does this format work for podcasting in your view?
