They're starting early

I was thinking this morning about ways we can start getting ready to support podcasting, and then read Dan Karleen's posting about the use of podcasting in K-12 that referenced this article in the New York Times . As Dan says, it won't be long (it's even already happening) before students will be coming to us already expecting podcasting, the way they've been expecting other online communication tools for a long time.

And now Apple's released their iTunes U, which is mentioned in just about every blog I read. See Dan Karleen, Gardner Campbell, and D'Arcy Norman, to name a few. Here at UWB, we'll sit back for a little while longer and see how the dust settles. But in the meantime, we'll be building up a general support strategy under the assumption that we'll need to be ready when the time comes.
