Unleash Your Lectures

Bob Warfield posted an interesting article entitled Universities Should Podcast Every Class.

In the article, Bob suggests the possibility of installing video equipment in every lecture hall, tying into class schedules, and posting the content for access by students.

For my tastes, I wish we had more efforts along the lines of the work being done by Jeff Curto.

Jeff's History of Photography podcast is an excellent example of what is possible with a very modest amount of technology. I highly recommend his lectures to anyone with a passion for photography. Those interested might also want to read Globalizing Education One Podcast at a Time, in which Jeff outlines how he creates the podcasts.

We are most definitely beyond the point where technology is the primary hindrance.
