Last week the BBC reported that the University College London, the Open University and Trinity College Dublin are putting lectures onto ‘iTunes U’. Course material on iTunes isn’t new and in March Brain Kelly (UK Web Focus) highlighted that one of the UKs ‘Top of the Pods, Podpickers’ was the University of Bath whose podcasts were “popular enough to get us featured in the top 50 podcast originator on i-Tunes in the “Science and Medicine” section, ahead of any other university in the world.”

There is a very good article in the Times Higher Education which touches on the pros and cons of podcasts asking the question are ‘Podcasts set to know lectures off the podium’.
