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. In this context, a podcast presents a learning stimulus, guides knowledge acquisition or learning through example, and elicits understanding. Does this format work for podcasting in your view?

Learning Visions

In the context of e-Learning (back then it was just plain old CBT), this meant you had audio/video on the screen with timed text bullets.

Use audio and video to create impactful learning. Contrary to popular belief, audio and video can be introduced in an e-course without creating a hole in training budgets.
