Podcast #17 from NCQ Talk

Hi everyone! Today's selection is a podcast from NCQ Talk. NCQ is short for a Nerd, a Canadian, and a Quaker - the 3 co-hosts of this series. The NCQ Talk podcast is about the intersection of technology and learning. See:

These podcasts are hosted by Kris Smith (the Nerd), Dan Balzer (the Canadian), and Susan Manning (from the Quaker State) - it is clear from listening to their podcasts that they have great chemistry between themselves - and they are very knowledgeable about Internet technologies and online learning. Their biographical sketches are linked from the NCQ Talk website. Several years ago, I worked indirectly with Susan in her role as an instructor for the Illinois Online Network ( NCQ Talk is sponsored by Palegroove Studios in partnership with the Learning Times Network.

This podcast is #17 in their series and was first published on 24 October 2005. In this episode, the co-hosts discuss:

* What makes a podcast different from just posting audio on a website?
* How personal should an educator get to connect the course content with the students?
* The nerd speaks out on the question: Is "right-click" and "save as" an acceptable way to download a podcast?

As always, the orange title above has a link to the mp3 file with the podcast, and you can subscribe to the RSS feed for "Burks' Selections" using the address on the orange XML icon in the right column on the page.

Best regards,
