I must admit I'm not a huge fan of podcasts, I find just listening a bit boring, I would much prefer to watch a video. I couldn't even find one that interested me. I know that some of our lecturers have started using them as part of assignments for students. In nursing as part of medical terminology the students have to record themselves speaking the words and then submit this as a podcast for their teacher to assess. This is great use of podcasts and the library will be running training sessions for these students early in term 4 on how to do this.
