Podcasts From SLA

.: A number of podcasts from selected sessions at the SLA Conference in Seattle, 14-18 June 2008, are available for listening via the Click U site. You do not need to be a member of SLA to listen to the podcasts (as best I can determine).

Nature Podcasts

.: Not sure how I missed this one, but Nature is offering weekly podcasts since 5 October 2005. From the Nature site:

Welcome to the Nature Podcast. Each week we'll be publishing a free audio show, presented and produced by Chris Smith, a doctor, virology researcher and radio presenter from the University of Cambridge, UK.

Each show will feature highlights from that week's issue of Nature and interviews with the people behind the science, and journalists covering the research.

Implementing Podcasting in the Classroom Web Conference

.: Interesting post from Gerry McKiernan on STS-L that will be of interest to all who are following the ongoing developments in podcasting. Implementing Podcasting in the Classroom Web Conference takes place on Wednesday, November 30th, from 1300-1430 hrs EST. Details from the site:

Overview:

"Podcasting" seems to be as popular a buzzword today as "mp3" was in 1999 when it became the number one search word on the internet. However, just as in 1999, many still do not know what this new technology is or how to take full advantage of it in an academic setting. The Implementing Podcasting in the Classroom web conference will examine how existing technology infrastructure can be used in conjunction with podcasting technology to reach students in new and meaningful ways. Join us to examine a fully-deployed classroom podcasting program and explore how this new technology could be deployed on your campus.

Who Should Attend:

This event is designed to demonstrate how to effectively implement a podcasting program to technology administrators desiring specific details on existing implementations in classroom settings. This includes vice presidents of instructional technology and chief information officers deciding on how to best implement a new podcasting program, distance learning support staff, library technology administrators, and audio-visual and multimedia support staff.

A single site connection registration fee is $350.00US.
