Analysis of Students' Downloading of Online Audio Lecture Recordings in a Large Biology Lecture Course
White, Brian T.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v38 n3 p23-27 Jan 2009
This paper address three questions apropos of those posed by Kadel (2006) in the context of a large introductory-level undergraduate science lecture course. These questions include how podcasting is used by professors and students, whether podcasting decreases lecture attendance, and if particular podcasting options are effective teaching tools. It begins by exploring which students download the podcasts and when. Next, it examines the temporal pattern of downloads and what this suggests about how students use the podcasts. Finally, it examines whether the availability of podcasts reduces lecture attendance. (Contains 1 table and 5 figures.)
