Duke University and Podcasting



OK. Duke University ISN’T podcasting lectures, but they easily could. I was reading an article about their iPod project – take a gander at this quote:

Lori Leachman, professor of the practice of economics, records her lectures with an iPod and then posts them to a shared server. She said that in her class of 300 students, about 40 record her lectures on a daily basis.”

Hmm… mp3 files on a server… gee, what can you do with those? Maybe… aggregate them? Add an RSS feed to those posts? They’re so close. But still, even this much is close. And it’s way cool to see what Duke is doing with iPods, even though some students thought “cool. Free tunes.”

    Some of us — not at Duke — are more than close. Jean-Claude Bradley at Drexel podcasts (and webcasts) course lectures (complete with the handy RSS feeds); I’m doing the same this fall. You can subscribe through iTunes to “Introduction to Quantum Chemistry”. Of course, neither of our institutions give out iPods.

    Lectures are nice but Georgia College & State University has gone beyond that. Take a look at what they have done: http://ipod.gcsu.edu/
