Using Audacity to create podcasts

3 10 2006

itunes picAn excellent vodcast (video blog post) by Sue Waters, in which she demonstrates the use of the free audio-editing software Audacity to record, mix and export podcasts (with many examples of her own podcasts throughout her blog site).

One of the things I particularly like about Sue’s blog are her practical demonstrations and interviews with m-learners and m-teachers. Her work experimenting with and documenting standards for educational podcasting (such as optimum quality settings) is also very useful. Well done, Sue!

Reports on Mobile Learning, Mobile Life, and Mobile Youth

3 10 2006

Some recently published primary research papers that help to inform mobile learning approaches and mobile learning policy:

  • From the E-Learning Guild, their report on m-learning, published in August this year. More than half of respondents reported that their organisations are using m-learning, and there are a number of other trends that demonstrate the increasing relevance and importance of mobile learning.
  • Two reports on mobile life and mobile youth, from the UK (via All about Mobile Life). From the Mobile Youth report: the survey of over 1,250 young people found that 51% of 10 year olds, and 70% of 11 year olds own a mobile phone (with the majority on pre-paid plans), with Nokia, Motorola, and Samsung the three most popular brands among young people (aged 11-17).
