Podcasting and Advanced Legal Research Classes
I have been participating in the CALI Podcasting Project this semester with my Advanced Legal Research – Foreign, Comparative and International Law class. I record 15 min. summaries of the class sessions and post them to a blog to which students may subscribe using RSS and am working to make them available through iTunes soon.
Monday I went to a training session conducted by Apple on Podcasting and Education. They demonstrated how to create podcasts using the Apple software Garage Band. Instead of just hearing my voice you can easily add background music, photos and hyperlinks to websites using Garage Band. Another piece of software discussed was Prof Cast which allows you to show PowerPoint slides along with your voice. You can insert cues in the program to move through a series of slides. I am anxious to try this type of podcasting as it is especially well suited to advanced research courses. In these types of courses students learn by seeing and doing as much as they learn by hearing or reading.
