Susan Smith Nash - Podcast Theory Gap

Hi everyone! Here is a thought piece on the "podcast theory gap" from Susan Smith Nash - the self-proclaimed "E-Learning Queen".

Her original poscast is at:

"Online learners seem to prefer using audio and web-based information in ways that counter what researchers recommend. … Do current ideas about working memory and cognitive processing shed any light? What are the implications for developers of online courses, knowing that learners may not be using the media in the environment it was intended?"

As always, the orange title of this posting is a direct link to the mp3 file with the podcast, and you can subscribe to the RSS feed for "Burks' Selections" by using the orange XML button on the lower right of this page.
