Podcasts are very useful, especial to review information. I am a learner that needs to have the information repeated. Podcasts, voice recordings, and written materials are nice to have for references, especially when studying for tests. Having the podcasts takes away the guessing of what was said or if it is a video podcast then the "special test" of the shoulder can be reviewed. I want to flip my classroom and utilize either podcasts or voiced powerpoints for the students to review on their own and then use the classroom for projects and discussions of the material. Technology is going to give students a more hands on classroom experience.
