Ask and ye shall receive.
I recently wondered aloud about the viability of podcasting video for teaching purposes.
Well, I guess others have been wondering as well. Harvard has just announced that they are vPodcasting a computer science course. Frankly, comp sci wouldn’t be my first choice for this sort of experiment because (a) I don’t see any special pedagogical utility in offering it via video and (b) I don’t see any pedagogical utility to making the video portable. That said, if you’re already offering a course via video for whatever reason, why not make it portable for the students?
