Description - How to Create Podcasts for Education by Gilly Salmon
"Few other technological developments have the same potential for transforming teaching and learning as podcasts ... This step by step guide can help the fledgling podcaster take the first few steps to using podcasts and can encourage those already dabbling to improve their practices by understanding underlying principles ... I can only urge you to give it a go."
Dr Stephen Gomez, National Teaching Fellow and Principal Lecturer, University of the West of England, UK
"With podcasting now really taking flight, this highly practical book is just what teaching practitioners need. It is refreshingly accessible in its use of language, making it suitable for those of us that don't know our vodcasting from our podcasting."
Dr Gwen van der Velden, Director of Learning and Teaching Enhancement, University of Bath, UK
"Podcasting is now at a tipping point and ready to provide universal 24/7 access to learning. This book provides the background and an invaluable "how to" guide ... It deserves to be in every library and faculty office."
Dr Bill Ashraf, Director of Technology Enhanced Learning, University of Sussex, UK
"Given the dominance of text-based formats, this timely book demonstrates that media-diversification is a MUST.."
Dr Thomas Hulsmann, Program Director of the Master of Distance Education (MDE), Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg, Germany
"'Podcasting made easy' - does that sound like a contradiction in terms? Well now you don't have to struggle with the technicalities because this book really does describe how easy it is to create and utilize podcasting in teaching ... I thoroughly recommend it..."
TingTing Zeng, Learning Technologist, Imperial College, UK
"While the book is a mine of information, both pedagogical and practical, it is the hands-on aspect that captured my heart. Clearly written by experts, the process of creating podcasts is described in an easy-to-understand, practical way that is accessible to novice and experienced podcast author alike ... If you've been toying with the idea of podcasts, this is for you. If you've tried the basics and want to go the next step, this is for you. How to create Podcasts for Education will not merely be on your bookshelf; I predict that it will be well-thumbed!"
Ruth Brown, Academic Developer, Learning and Teaching Enhancement Unit, London South Bank University, UK
