Study Reports Podcast Trumps Lecture

Diff (Gregory Differding) has recommended two articles that address issues important to our online faculty.

The first article is "Podcast Trumps Lecture in One College Study." According to researchers, "Students who listened to a lecture via iTunes U outperformed those who attended in person."

"The ability to pause and rewind podcast lectures gave the upper hand to college students in a recent study that compared the performance of students who attended a lecture in person and those who viewed it from iTunes University."

The second article Diff recommended is "UC Distance Learning Up 15%." The UC in question here is the University of Cincinnati, but the information in the article applies to all of us.

Please take a few minutes to read these articles.
