JALT CALL Journal, v11 n1 p3-17 2015
The provision of supplemental educational and instructional content in podcast form is becoming increasingly widespread in first language education. However, amongst second language students in Japan the lack of literature illustrates podcast use has been limited. Imitating podcasts, educational and instructional materials in audio form were delivered to Japanese university English language learners directly by email to encourage and reinforce learning and prepare them for upcoming class content and tasks. Investigation revealed students' receptiveness to these materials, the benefits that they brought to learning, and how teachers in similar circumstances can utilize this alternative delivery method.
