Steve Sloan thoughts on edupodding are convincing. Not sure its disruptive yet. Lot of small things have to go together.

Is podcasting a disruptive technology for education? It may be too soon to tell. But, after less than a week in existence, a Google search on "Edupodder" turned up over 410 hits. [ This one is in the UK.] There seems to be real interest in this technology in education.

My own experience with IT Conversations , was mostly about educating myself in an informal manner.  ( Doug has been doing great work compiling those interviews. Thanks Doug !).

I don't see any reason why podcasting cant be used in a formal education process.  If you expand on this trend and connect the dots then the future of education looks very democratic. Eventually this problem of education will become a problem of digital divide.  Just take these projects together  - Google library project, MIT Openware and Edupodding
and you have a pretty disruptive development.

Will be following this development.  You should too, its about the future of education .

Update:  D'Arcy Norman corrected the url for Learning commons. Sorry about that.  Right link to check out the archive section for podcasting is this. Plenty of good stuff there.

Doh !, fixed the incorrect link.  Typepad's  html authoring interface doesnt allow link edit and that can be embarrasing sometimes ! Thanks Norman.

Doh. Looks like you borked the links when fixing mine :-) The iPodder link now points to something that's trying to be on my weblog, but isn't...

Not sure why you linked to an old entry on my weblog... If you just want podcast-related stuff, try: http://commons.ucalgary.ca/weblogs/dnorman/category/weblogs/podcasting/ Or, if you want the weblog as a whole, it's at: http://commons.ucalgary.ca/weblogs/dnorman/
