Podcasting lectures

Time to just get started. I'm going to start recording lectures in my mass comm class and posting them on the course web site.

I've downloaded a freeware audio recording program from the Apple site (Audacity) and created a page on the site for uploading. I'll create an RSS feed and link to iTunes later.

As far as the fear of students not attending class and listening to the lectures instead, I already award credit for attendance in class (25%) in the day class and have a mechanism for recording attendance through reading of lectures in the online class. So this should not change things.

My bigger concern is whether students will download and listen to the lectures.
