iPod in Class

DUKE UNIVERSITY'S experiment with iPods now includes a deal with Public Radio International to provide digital audio files for classroom use. Duke professors will use portions of public radio shows "This American Life" and "Studio 360" for no charge. Students will be able to download the shows into their portable MP3 players--they won't need an iPod.

Poynter reports how the Instructional Research Center at George Mason University precedes every semester with "Byte Week" when students, staff and faculty receive an extensive series of hands-on workshops to impringove their technology expertise. Some new sessions, start on 22 August this year, include "Introduction to Podcasting" and "Podcasting: An Exciting New Technology for Higher Education."
