NCQ Talk on Podcasting

Hi everyone! Today's selection is a podcast about podcasting from NCQ Talk. This podcast was posted to the web on 24 January 2006 at:

The show notes for this podcast included:

"Did the grandfathers of podcasting intend for podcasts to be used for coursecasting?

A taxonomy of different types of education podcasts:

1. Coursecasts - mobile lectures. Example: Duke University uses them in its intranet, Purdue University's BoilerCast is a good example too.

2. Tools - these podcasts are tool summaries. Example: Podcast for Teachers: Techpod

3. Philosopher’s Corner - podcasts that discuss learning, philosophy of education.

4. Professional development - Example: NCQTalk is solidly in this category.

5. Student-centered - podcasts created by and with students. Examples: Willowweb - Radio for Kids, by Kids from Willowdale Elementary School, Omaha, Nebraska, David Miller uses podcasts as a study group for his Psychology class. Check out his discussion with his students about what they learned through doing a podcast.

Susan points out that #2-5 are creative and go beyond the basic "functional" purpose of coursecasting."

The NCQ Talk 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. NCQ Talk is sponsored by Palegroove Studios in partnership with the Learning Times Network.

I hope you enjoy this podcast!

Best regards,
