Podcasting for Educational Purposes – Preliminary Investigation of the Gap between the ‘Have’ and the ‘Have-not’
Save to My Collections
Podcast has been introduced to tertiary education for teaching and learning purposes relatively recently but it has achieved widespread attention in many universities. There are reports that teachers, students or even the general public have adopted podcasts as means to promote efficiency and accessibility of the virtual environment during both the course of teaching and learning. Such widespread attention in using this strategy in the educational context has not yet been observed in Hong Kong. Using teacher interviews, student survey and student interviews, we explored a number of obstacles for the adoption of the strategy in our context. The non-use of podcasting media in daily life is a major factor among other concerns of teachers and students. We believe these findings are relevant to other institutions and regions around the world, in particular, those who share similar teaching and learning background and culture with us.
