It is a cool idea: faculty and students put bootlegs of lectures on Apple - Education - iTunes U, but with all the lackluster succes of digital and mobile lectures projects - is this a real good new service for students? Most of my lectures depend heavily on slides I am showing. Are students really listening to this? But perhaps some students really try to recapulate their lectures? It could be nice if one assign students to create a five minute podcast summary… . Yeah, I will try that next semester.
