Pedagogical Podcasting for Learning
Podcasting originated as a technology to create and distribute personal “radio shows” via the internet. It is now becoming a technology used to support learning in many educational contexts, at least in more economically developed countries. A 2008 survey of learning technologies used in higher education institutions in the UK (Browne et al. 2008) showed that podcasting is a tool that has “increased significantly in prominence” in UK universities (p. 2). Increasing numbers of research papers published on podcasting indicate a growing interest from teachers, technologists and researchers in this field.
