Abstract

The steady adoption of podcasting within the academic sector has opened up a new range of teaching and promotional opportunities for institutions seeking to retain the interest of the 'point and click' generation. Modern students are not excited by the prospect of sitting in large lecture theatres at a time designated by the lecturer, but prefer to access information via computers or hand-held technologies, at times they choose - video streaming, social networking sites, wikis and blogs are all being added to the portfolio of educational delivery methods in addition to the podcast.
