Podcasting for learning Podcast

The MASIE Center – Learning Lab & ThinkTank – PodCasting for Learning Call

I’m listening right now to this podcast. It’s got a slow start, but there are some good ideas in there. For example, around the 10 or 15 minute mark, they give some ideas for ways to use training podcasts. One example was a tour that a national park was giving. Tourists can download a tour that you stop and start as you drive around the park (in a prescribed direction). That’s not really a big change from yesterday’s technology: audio tours are not new, but using a podcast for the tour opens up a cheaper way to do it than the radio or cassette methods commonly used.

As I listen to this, the content is getting better, especially as the floor is opened for questions. Lots of good tactical stuff here. Give it a listen!

As an aside, I’m at the SkillSoft Perspectives conference this week, and Elliott Masie is the Keynote Speaker tomorrow. I’ve walked past him a couple of times, and made eye contact, but for some reason I haven’t talked to him yet. I didn’t really have anything to say to him beyond, “Hey, thanks for putting all this content and visibility out there for learning.” Seemed kind of lame to interrupt his pre-conference poolside relaxation for that (though now that I type it out, maybe it’s not so lame). Maybe I’ll catch him at the reception tonight. It’s interesting to me that I walked past him 5 minutes before I got the TRENDS email from him about the podcast above. He had sent it about an hour before. Nothing unusual about that, but I thought it was interesting.
