Pray that the date of my first blog is not a bad omen! As you know we Indians tend to be very superstitious. Well…i guess time will tell.
While I was driving home last evening….i do have a long drive, about 70 minutes….the news on NPR was rather sad….i quickly remembered that i could download “Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me”…one of my favorite NPR shows, as a podcast into the NPR app on my iPhone. While stuck in traffic on the Pike i quickly downloaded last Sundays broadcast…..and well for the next 40 minutes or so i enjoyed my drive home. I did miss Mo Rocca on the show….but nevertheless the show was just as enjoyable.
I do hope that our students are able to do the same for lectures that faculty record. What a great way of listening to content. As the percent of students that have smartphones increases, i do hope we are able to capture (record) additional content and make them available as podcasts. I should encourage my older son who heads off to college this fall to do the same. Well, I guess time will tell!
