Podcasting a Physics Lecture
McDonald, James E. R.
Physics Teacher, v46 n8 p490-493 Nov 2008
The technology of podcasting, or creating audio or video files that can be subscribed to over the Internet, has grown in popularity over the past few years. Many educators have already begun realizing the potential of delivering such customized content, but most efforts have focused on lecture-style humanities courses or multimedia arts courses. At the University of Hartford, I have made audio recordings of physics lectures available as podcasts for four semesters. Despite the fact that physics is math-intensive and inherently visual, the students have found the podcasts to be very useful.
