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?

Podcasting for E-Learning: Benefits of Digital Audio

Today's digital audio multi-tracks not only out-perform analog machines, costs less to manufacture, and is quite easily integrated into a multimedia production environment.

Companies began to buy learning management systems (LMS) to archive online lessons and track employee use. Almost any video, podcast, or webpage is potentially a way to learn.
