They Hear, but Do Not Listen: Retention for Podcasted Material in a Classroom Context
Daniel, David B.; Woody, William Douglas
Teaching of Psychology, v37 n3 p199-203 2010
This study examined the retention of students who listened to podcasts of a primary source to the retention of students who read the source as text. We also assessed students' preferences and study habits. Quiz scores revealed that the podcast group performed more poorly than did students who read the text. Although students initially preferred podcasts, their preferences changed immediately after the quiz. Podcasts might be a useful tool to supplement or enrich course-related material, but they are not as effective as text for delivering primary content. (Contains 2 tables and 2 notes.)
