Interesting white paper on podcasting in education. Apparently, audio only podcasting for review purposes serves students much better than lecture-type audio recordings. In particular, RSS feeds make it much more likely that students will download the podcasts and listen to them.

Reviewing lectures is a great study tool. It isn’t, however, a replacement for attending class or interacting with other students, whether they attend online, f2f, blended, or otherwise.
