Abstract

Experience obtained in the support of mobile learning using podcast audio is reported. The paper outlines design, storage and distribution via a web site. An initial evaluation of the uptake of the approach in a final year computing module was undertaken. Audio objects were tailored to meet different pedagogical needs resulting in a repository of persistent glossary terms and disposable audio lectures distributed by podcasting. An aim of our approach is to document the interest from the students, and evaluate the potential of mobile learning for supplementing revision.
