Life to the dead blog? Coursecasting, ITunes U

Reading this morning in the Chronicle of Higher Ed, and spotted a nice article in the Chronicle’s free section about Apple’s initiative to help institutions “coursecast” audio & video content through a customized iTunes server.

This is cool, and seems quite useful to me.

I’ve warmed up to the idea of recording lectures. I have a student this semester who needs me to wear a mic for accessibility to the lectures, and I’ve gotten used to it. Still have the issues with trying to figure out how to wire everyone in the room so you can have productive discussions. That seems to me to be the biggest hurdle right now…

PS: have not posted in ages, been too busy! Thought I’d try to get back into the habit!
